There's some type of ?aster that popped up in an open area on the edge of my wooded property - it's blooming now. I've never seen a daisy type yellow flower with leaves like this -

Some type of Senecio? Maybe Senecio glabellus?


RE: Mystery Wildflower

I looked up senecio glabellus, and that's it, Rhonda! Not only are the flowers the same as the pictures on the internet, the leaves are too, which is the key. Thanks so much for the ID - I think it's a pretty little plant.
And thanks for the input cjbspokane!
