Please try our next iteration of the Michigan Flora Online here. Beginning on February 1, 2023, will point to this new site.

The new site offers several benefits over the existing website, including real coordinate mapping, giving a clearer view of the density of documentation as well as more precision about plant distributions and their link to landforms. We will also have the ability to update species pages more regularly, both in terms of new collections and as more existing Michigan specimens are georeferenced. In addition, we have a better photo display, and offer indented keys.

Erigeron pulchellus B. S. Walters

Oak and jack pine savannas, etc., doing well after fire; banks, often moist, as above fens, lakes, and other wet areas; meadows, openings in deciduous forests.

The stems often tend to be even more pubescent at the base than in E. philadelphicus. Heads average fewer than in E. philadelphicus, and are quite showy. The plants are stoloniferous and colonial, while E. philadelphicus is clumping.
