Chrysopsis subulata

SCRUBLAND GOLDENASTER

Florida native

Endemic to Florida

 

A frequent perennial wildflower of flatwoods and disturbed sites on the Florida peninsula. The range extends from Alachua and St. Johns Counties south to Lake Ockeechobee, plus Collier County.
Scrubland goldenasters have yellow ray and disk flowers. C. subulata can most easily be distinguished from the other Chrysopsis species by its awl-shaped (subulate) and flexuous bracts around the base of the flower. These bracts are called phyllaries in the aster family. The stem leaves are alternate, numerous and vary from linear to spatulate. The basal leaves are spatulate or obovate and can be smooth or covered with long white hairs.
