|This is growing in Jerusalem. Any ideas on what it might be?|

|Of course I'm just guessing here ~ |
Do the leaves have a camphor-like scent? It reminds me of one we have here in the U.S. called Heterotheca subaxillaris, Camphorweed, in the Aster family.

|That's a very intelligent suggestion. However, leaves of this plant are leathery, unlike the thin leaves of the plant you mention. This plant is also being used in landscaping here. It may not be native to this part of the world, could come from anywhere.|

|Welcome to APT, garden18!|
This mystery plant sounds like it comes from a hot, dry climate. This looks like a plant I need here in Kansas! I'm anxious to find out what this is, and if it's available in the U.S. How big does it get? How much does it spread?
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

|Thanks for the welcome, CindiKS. This plant spreads. It is covering an area several thousand square feet in size, adjacent to a train station. Obviously, it's a tough plant. Like all gardems and landscapes in Jerusaelm, It is watered by drip irrigation.|

|No clue as to your plant, but wanted to say from the Florida panhandle|

It's in the family Asteraceae, and the leaves remind me a lot of Corn Marigold, Glebionis segetum but it's not quite like yours. It resembles Senecio too. I found a site with flowers of Israel which might help,there's a list of families with some photos.

You can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
