We've all heard the rhyme "April showers bring May flowers", but just what blooms in May?
Follow along as we post about a new flower every day in May, some familiar, some may be new, all beautiful in their unique sort of way!
In the United States and Canada there are 191 species in the Erigeron genus, some residing in only one state. The state of Ohio has only 3 native species: the Eastern Daisy Fleabane, the Philadelphia Fleabane, and the Wild Prairie Fleabane. The subtle differences are hard to see in field, but side by side like this they show off their differences.
These will bloom from now (late spring) through the summer months.
The leaves are edible but fuzzy, best to cook first!
