Family Asteraceae


This daisy ranges through much of the United States. It is uncommon in Florida, native to a few counties in the panhandle region. It produces a tall spike of yellow daisies to nearly ten feet tall. Flowers are produced in mid- to late summer. Gardeners like this plant because rabbits do not eat it.
