Notes: Erigeron pulchellus - one of the fleabanes. The key difference between these and the similar looking asters is that the fleabanes bloom in spring and early summer while the asters bloom in late summer and fall. Robin's Plantain is one of the earliest to bloom in the year and can be found flowering as early as April. Fleabanes got their name
