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 represented 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 other than the genus Senecio. Here are some very attractive natives, and one of the worst non-native invasives.
