Fleabanes are another common roadside plant in the Composite family.  Many small flowers, with specialized functions and appearances, make up what looks like a single, showy flower.  Daisies and asters have a look similar to fleabanes.  Michigan has seven species of fleabanes, with one on the state threatened list (E. hyssopifolius).  Three species occur commonly throughout the Michigan.
