POTD: Fleabane #2

Fleabane #2
Bozeman, Montana
2020

There are 170 different varieties of fleabane that grow in the United States. I have no idea which particular variety this one is, but I do believe we have more than one variety that grows on our land. (A conclusion based on observing a variety of stem lengths, flower shapes and when during the growing season they bloom.) The name fleabane comes from the plant’s supposed ability to repeal fleas–a claim whose effectiveness I fortunately have no first-hand knowledge of.
