ⓘ Chrysoma

More than 20 species names have been created in the genus, most of them now transferred to other genera. Only one remains, Chrysoma pauciflosculosa, native to the southeastern United States. Chrysoma pauciflosculosa is a branching, evergreen shrub up to 100 cm 39 in tall, with resin but no hairs. Flower heads are yellow, in dense, flat-topped arrays of many small heads, sometimes with no ray florets but sometimes with 2 or 3 ray florets, plus 2-5 disc florets.
