This looks a sturdy flower.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - very small....but very hardy. These tundra plants are just incredible. They have such a short period in the summer to get their seeds dispersed and ripened.
One flower per plant is really unusual. Lovely.
What a delightful little flower.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is... and "little" being the operative word!
We have a related Erigeron as a tough rockery plant
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: There are many in that genus, I believe. All very pretty!
