Erigeron philadelphicus L.
This flower was once sold to me as feverfew and fortunately I identified it before brewing it as tea . Fleabane originally got it's name for it's ability to repel fleas.
We come across many herbs daily, but should not use any unless we can clearly identify them. Making flowering herbs even more difficult to identify is the fact that there are so many various species. The erigeron alone has 194 different species, with this one being referred to as the names listed above and also as daisy fleabane and common fleabane.
