Are those little blooms fluffy like small dandelions?

Hi James,

I am from the Netherlands in Europe. Time zone +1. It is now late summer here. This plant is wind hardy and has a strong stem as it is windy at the balcony.

Hi Jmorth,

Yes, the flowers are fluffy like dandelions.

I'm not sure what species grow in the Netherlands but it looks more like a species of Conyza to me.

Hi Horntoad and Bonitin,

Thank you very much. I do think it's a conyza canadensis.
