White Flowers ( Daisy-like Flowers )
Composite Family (Compositae)

Common Fleabane
Erigeron caespitosus

Season: Spring/Summer
Habitat:
 Montane on both sides of Continental Divide
Height:
 Up to 15 cm

Description: This fleabane tends to grow in large patches. The leaves are unlike the dissected leaves of the daisy fleabane, but are simple, linear, smooth margined, and fuzzy. The fuzzy stem terminates with a single daisy-like flower. The petal-like ray florets may be white, blue, or even pink. The yellow centre stays consistent. The petals are a bit longer than the short, 1 cm long petals of most fleabanes.

It can be distinguished from the more common daisy by its undissected leaves. Daisy leaves have shallow lobes along the margin.
