creeping goldenaster, Heterotheca jonesii

Creeping goldenaster used to be Jones' false goldenaster. Then the horticulturists discovered that it makes a very good mounding plant for dry country gardens. Ot dry, to-well-drained spots in more rainy country. And apparently discovered that creeping is more marketable than Jones. It is native to a limited area in southern Utah, but on this day was spotted in a Washtenaw MI garden, 6/18/21. Aster family, Asteraceae.
