Asteraceae: Sunflower Family – Eupatorieae (Eupatory) Tribe
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 Eupatory tribe has only two representatives in Monterey County. Neither one looks much like a sunflower, and one is highly invasive.
