A Fall Wildflower

Calling all amateur naturalists!

This fall I am seeing a wildflower in abundance here in PA – one I don’t recall paying attention to before. It consists of clusters of tiny white flowers that are little tufts, with hardly any petals. Check it out.

 

 

Identifying it in the wildflower guide is not easy because there are so many similar plants. From what I find, this seems to be a Late-flowering thoroughwort, in the Composite or Daisy family.

Do any of you see this plant where you live? Do you give it the same name I have given? Or do you have a different designation? Either way, I would be glad to hear from you.
