Erigeron philadelphicus / Harujion ハルジオン

 
Erigeron philadelphicus is a perennial herb originating in North America, growing wild broadly in Japan. Stems are hollow, rising to 0.3-1m in height; the whole is with vellus hairs. Radical leaves are still alive in flowering time, and the lower part of on-stem leaves are long, oblong, or spatulate, with winged petioles. Bases of on-stem leaves expand sideways in the way of ear lobes to embrace the stems. Flower heads are 2-2.5cm across, with many white to light purple ray florets. Bloom time: May-July.
