Leanna, There is a history behind how the flowers from the Mediterranean ended up here. They were brought on the ship , by Columbus and his crew probably. Most of these wild flowers were used as medicine . For instance , a concoction of the Mallow plant was used to ease toothache,and so on and so forth.
I'm learning something new every day here on PN. Thanks Emma :)
Leanna and Argy, I do find the fact that most of the wild flowers that I have spotted in California,are native to the Mediterranean.
For sure Argy!
It's amazing how widespread it is in Aus eh! (more than naturalised)
You're welcome! Seaside Daisy is a plant I learnt when I studied horticulture many years ago, though I thought I remembered it called something different. Thank 'you' Emma! I thought it was native to Australia! Silly memory ;)
Leanna, it is an Erigeon sp for sure. This plant is native to Oregon and California. So is the Species which you suggested. i am going to research it a little more.Thanks for the feed back. :))
Yeah that's it Leanne. Also known as Fleabane, Mexican daisies etc.
This reminds me of Seaside Daisy, Erigeron karvinskianus , though I'm unsure if it grows in your area.
