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 the non-Senecio genera which include some very attractive natives, and one of the worst non-native invasive species.
