Growing in zone 8 north central Fl. These photos were taken this month (April). When the flowers the blooms are very tiny lavender/lt. purplish in clusters in the bloom head. In these photos you can see the seed heads. The leaves always stay on the ground, there are none along stems above the ground. The leaves are very soft velvety hairy both above & underneath.

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

YAY JAY! Thumbs up


Elephantopus elatus -- tall elephant's foot. Your second link.

I knew you would call this one right off the bat!
Thank you. I tip my hat to you.
