2. Conyza ramosissima Cronquist (dwarf fleabane, spreading fleabane)

Erigeron divaricatus Michx.

Pl. 232 c–e; Map 969

Stems 1 to more commonly several, 5–25(–40) cm long, spreading, sometimes ascending toward the tip, moderately to densely branched nearly throughout (except in very small plants, which are branched only 1 or 2 times near the base), moderately to densely pubescent with strongly ascending (abruptly bent just above the stout base), white hairs (the whole plant often appearing grayish). Leaves 0.5–2.5(–4.0) cm long, sessile, the blade narrowly linear, moderately to densely appressed-hairy. Inflorescences relatively short panicles, often dense and well developed but sometimes appearing as short racemes or loose clusters at the branch tips. Involucre 1.5–3.0 mm long, the bracts glabrous or sparsely appressed-hairy. Ray florets 18–30, the corolla pink or light purple. Disc florets 3–8. 2n=18. May–September.

Scattered nearly throughout the state (North Dakota to Pennsylvania south to New Mexico and Alabama; Canada). Upland prairies, sand prairies, glades, and banks of rivers; also pastures, lawns, fallow fields, sidewalks, railroads, roadsides, and open, disturbed areas.
