It’s That Asteraceae Time Again

April 11, 2019 Posted by: Andrew Rosales

Asteraceae is one of the largest plant families in the world. This includes the sunflower, aster, daisy, cosmos, dahlia, and thistle to just name a few.  At Cabrillo National Monument we have a great bloom of plants in the sunflower family. This year’s rain has given the Sea Dahlia, Bush Sunflower, and San Diego Viguiera a great start and impressive bloom within the park.
