Coming from America, Erigeron annuus, an annual or biennial, is one of the most common plants seen throughout this country, from urban areas to rural districts, spreading even to subalpine zones. Stems measure 0.3-1.3m in height, with coarse hairs. Radical leaves vanish in flowering time. Leaves on lower parts are oval, with long pedicles and coarse serrations. Upper part leaves are lanceolate, bases tapering to embrace the stems. Flower heads are small, about 2cm across, and bloom on branch tops. Bloom time: June-October.
