This erect branched herb was clicked from along roadsides in Yamunanagar, Haryana on May 24, 2015.  I hope it narrows down to Symphiotrichum pilosum, it has been reported from J & K as per Flora of India 12:99, 1995, but listed as excluded species, because being perhaps escape from cultivation. Related species S. ericioides has spine tipped phyllaries.  

I am having doubts as per close up images at Minnesota Wildflowers as phyllaries appears to be different.

May I request you to pl. post original of 1st image.


Here it is …

Yes, it looks different and is not Symphiotrichum pilosum


I had posted this common picture on Indian Flora facebook, with this plant on right, I am also sharing plant on the left still unidentified. I agree ray florets are much narrower in my right plant shared above, could be some Erigeron.
I am sharing another plant separately also.

Reply in from another thread:

Rather my other upload which I suspect Symphiotrichum pilosum is more closer to E.annus


Looks different from Symphiotrichum pilosum !

Herb for ID from along Road from Yamuna Nagar to Renuka ji, May 24, 2015.


Yes, Erigeron


Ray florets are too short for E. annuus


Here are two plants of E. annuus, one from Kashmir and one from Chakrata.

Rather my other upload which I suspect Symphiotrichum pilosum is more closer to E. annuus

Anyway, appears to be Erigeron species only as per comparative images at Astereae

I guess it is Erigeron annuus only.
