Asteraceae: Sunflower Family – Senecio Tribe: miscellaneous
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 includes tribe members except for the genus Senecio (which has its own page). Here are some very attractive natives, and an aggressive alien invasive.
