Flowering Now

Daisy Fleabane

We have six different kinds of plants in the genus Erigeron, and they all have similar appearances. This particular one (Erigeron vernus) is an early spring bloomer, and often grows in groups, with a height of one to three feet. Their bright white flowers are easy to spot along the roadside and many flowers bloom on one plant. It is in the Composite family, so what look like white petals are actually ray flowers, with as many as forty in one flower head. The centers are made up of bright yellow disk flowers, making a very cheery display.  Blooming now along CR 67 north of Carrabelle.
