Chaetopappa ericoides Rose Heath
PERENNIAL. A low, shrubby plant with overlapping leaves that
are covered in long, spiny-looking white hairs. Fragile daisylike
flowers are about 2 cm, bloom in April. Occasional in the Empires
in desert grassland, under mesquite or other trees that provide filtered
shade. Eriophyllum lanosum has fewer, shorter, broader ray
florets, a creeping growth habit, and the leaves are not spiny-hairy.
