I am unsure as to whether the Fleabane I have is this particular one. The flowerheads on mine are smaller than pictured here and may start out lavenderish before turning to white. However the leaves pictured here look the same as mine. They are wildflowers here in my yard but I have captured some and planted some seed. They make a great show early in Spring when nothing but the wood sorrel is blooming.
