8. Tribe Inuleae Cass.

About 38 genera, about 480 species, Europe, Asia, Africa.

As currently circumscribed, most of the genera of the traditional Inuleae that were included in North American floras are classified into the tribes Gnaphalieae and Plucheeae (see those tribes for further discussion). Inuleae in the strict sense is an Old World group represented in North America only by garden escapes. The larger heads with usually well-developed ray florets serve to separate this tribe from the North American members of the Gnaphalieae and Plucheeae.

In addition to Inula, the other main genus of Inuleae that is cultivated for its horticultural and medicinal value is Pulicaria Gaertn. (pulicaria, false fleabane). Species of Pulicaria are grown infrequently in Missouri, have not been documented outside cultivation in the state, and have only rarely escaped in California and the northeastern states.
