Garberia

I first documented this flowering shrub back on March 13, 2018, at Chassahowitzka WMA. It was just a plant that I wanted to add to my observation on iNaturalist .

I never would have thought that this shrub would produce the most elegant flowers.

They are prominent in sandy, oak scrub habitats.

The seeds remind me of those of the dandelions. They produce a large number of seeds, to ensure nectar for next season pollinators.
