Fleabane (Conyza species)

Fleabane (Conyza species)

Fleabanes are annual herbs with a basal rosette of entire or toothed leaves and an erect, often greyish, leafy flowering stem. The small flower heads are cream to white and do not have the radiating petal-like florets seen in many daisies. Instead there are several slender tubular florets. Tiny fruits are topped by a ring of bristles.
