Bohemia Ecological Preserve

Below each dense flowerhead of the Sticky Western Rosinweed are narrow bracts covered in obvious round glands. Like most plants in the Aster Family, the composite flower is a combination of disc flowers in the center and ray flowers around the edge. Each ray-flower has one petal with three lobes. The disk-flowers are smaller with 5 petals each, covered with glandular hairs - and sometimes with a tinge of pink.
