This is the well known common kind, a general favorite, except with farmers, naturalized from Europe and also found in Asia; a perennial weed in pastures, meadows, and waste places, more or less all over the United States, but much more common in the Northeast. It grows from one to three feet high, the leaves toothed and cut, and the flower-heads measuring from one to two inches acrcss, with bright golden centers and pure white rays.

There are several kinds of Coreothrogyne, some resembling Lessingia, others Aster.
