Thistleleaf Aster

Thistleleaf Aster,  Eurybia eryngiifoliaThe disheveled appearance of the thin, creamy white rays surrounding a dark-brown center sets this species apart from other asters. Its Florida range is restricted to the several counties of the central panhandle, and it is not uncommon along roadsides in early summer, especially in the Apalachicola National Forest.
