Erigeron annuus   Tall Fleabane

Erigeron annuus whole Erigeron annuus close

This late flowering plant is an introduction from North America where it is known as Eastern Daisy Fleabane or Annual Fleabane. Here in the cobbled streets of this lakeside town it managed to occupy little cracks in the paved areas and any waste spaces - a typical alien plant behaviour.
