Asteraceae: Sunflower Family – Astereae Tribe: Hazardia, Isocoma & Lessingia
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 represented in Monterey County. The Astereae (Aster tribe) includes a diverse range of plants, some of which have clearly daisy-like flowers and others, even if the same genus, which do not.
