ⓘ Packera tomentosa

Packera tomentosa is a species of flowering plant in the composite family known by the common name woolly ragwort. It is native to the Southeastern United States, primarily to the coastal plain but extending into some areas inland. Its preferred habitat is open, sandy areas and granitic outcrops. It is common throughout its range.

Packera tomentosa is a perennial which produces a head of yellow flowers in late spring. Its seeds have been shown to have different mass in a single head of flowers, perhaps as an adaptation for acceleration in disturbed habitats.
