| Antennaria plantaginifolia, plantain-leaved pussytoes
Family Compositae or Asteraceae
Plantain-leaved pussytoes growth habit, Noble County, OH, April 2017
This clump has only male flowers. Grows in dry and barren habitats. This species is easily distinguished from Antennaria neglecta (field pussytoes) by the 3-5 veins in the spatulate basal leaves. A. neglecta has only one vein. There are many pussytoes, with disputed species. One similar one, A. solitaria, does have similar basal leaves, but the stem has no small leaves and there is only one flower head per stalk.
