pineland rayless goldenrod, Bigelowia nudata

Pineland rayless goldenrod very nearly lives down to its name. But if you look very closely, you can see a few rays peeking out. This plant is certainly showy enough without them. It forms low bushy clumps that can't help but catch your eye when in bloom. Pineland rayless goldenrod grows in open sandy or rocky areas in AL, FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, SC, and TX. Broward Co FL, 3/20/16. Aster family, Asteraceae.
