Groundsel Tree

Baccharis halimifolia L.

Family Asteraceae

The groundsel tree, also called the "consumption weed" is most often a shrub but can be a small tree. It is dioecious (male trees and female trees). It usually grows in wastelands that are wet and warm. It is notable because of the late flowering and the fact that it has shown a northward "migration" in the state.
