Asteraceae: Sunflower Family – Senecio Tribe: Senecio
The Sunflower family is a very large family with over 25,000 members. Botanists subdivide the family into a number of tribes, of which 14 are present in Monterey County. The Senecio tribe comprises a mixture of obviously daisy-like flowers, and others that don’t look like sunflowers. This page shows members of the Senecio genus, including one native and several non-native species.
