Daisy Fleabane

Small, purple daisy flowers with thin ray florets and a dense central flower disc, Wild Fleabane is a vital food resource for Monarch butterflies in the north after spring and summer migration. While it may look like a common weed before flowering, fleabane is a great way to attract butterflies with fairly robust, colorful, and clustering flowers. Increasing the footprint of this pretty Asteraceae is potentially a way to naturally improve butterfly populations in areas of thinning or lost habitat.
