• aurea
  • It is easily confused with golden ragwort (Packera aurea) which has a hairless stem and heart-shaped basal leaves, and Senecio integerrimus, which has leaves that are mostly entire instead of fern-like, and much larger basal leaves. (wikipedia.org)
  • Packera aurea ), my overlooked and under-used native plant for this post, is a wonderful little flower I would like to see used in many more gardens. (wordpress.com)
  • Lepidoptera
  • Just as monarch butterflies rely on milkweeds, there is a little lepidoptera that relies on native ragworts, the northern metalmark ( Calephelis borealis ). (wordpress.com)
