Asteraceae: Sunflower Family – Senecio Tribe: Senecio
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, plus others with discoid or disciform heads. These have no or only tiny ray flowers. This page shows members of the Senecio genus, including one native and several non-native species.
