Erigeron pulchellus flowers

Flowering - April - June.

Habitat - Rocky open woods, thickets, stream edges.

Origin - Native to U.S.

Other info. - This species can be found throughout much of Missouri but is apparently absent from the west-central and northwest portions of the state. The plant is probably the easiest of the Erigeron species to ID in Missouri because of its densely hairy stems and its big flower heads. The plant spreads by stolons and often forms little colonies.
The species epithet - " pulchellus " means "pretty."

Stems erect to ascending (usually abruptly dilated proximal to heads), villous (more densely so on proximal 1 / 2 ), eglandular. Leaves basal (persistent) and cauline; basal blades oblanceolate to obovate or suborbiculate, subspatulate, 20—130(—180) × 6—30(—50) mm, cauline gradually reduced distally (bases clasping and slightly auriculate), margins usually dentate to denticulate, rarely entire, faces sparsely to moderately hirsute to hirsuto-villous, sometimes glabrate or glabrous (especially adaxially), eglandular. Heads 1—4(—9). Involucres 5—7 × 6—20 mm. Phyllaries in 2—3(—4) series, sparsely to moderately hirsute to hirsuto-villous (cross walls not distinctly colored), minutely glandular to stipitate-glandular. Ray florets 50—80(—100); corollas light blue to purplish, pink, or white, 6—10 mm, laminae coiling tardily at tips. Disc corollas 4.5—6 mm.
