Heterotheca villosa (Hairy Golden Aster)

Order Asterales, Family Asteraceae, Genus Hetrotheca

Woody stems and glandular-hairy leaves distinguish this perennial aster. It loves direct sun, and grows in meadows. H. villosa is similar to H. foliosa, but smaller in every way.


Here are both plants, next to each other. I love it when things work this way!
