Astereae

Canada goldenrod Solidago canadensis, from the Connecticut Botanical Society.


Belongs within: Asteroideae.
Contains: Aster, Olearia, Calotis, Erigeron, Bellidinae, Celmisia, Ericameria.

The composite-flowered tribe Astereae includes asters (Aster), goldenrods (Solidago) and related taxa. Members of the group are distinguished by the morphology of the fertile disc-flowers, in which the marginal stigmatic lines do not reach the summits of the style-branches. Within the Astereae, members of the subtribe Asterinae have a well-developed pappus, as opposed to the reduced pappus of the Bellidinae (Black & Robertson 1965). Pleurophyllum species are robust perennial herbs found on the Subantarctic islands of New Zealand (Allan 1961).

Characters (from Black & Robertson 1965): Style-branches of fertile disc-flowers flattish, with two marginal papillose stigmatic lines along lower part of branches and long or short non-stigmatic appendage at summit bearing short collecting hairs on outside; flower-heads heterogamous radiate; receptacle usually naked; pappus consisting of bristles, awns or scales, rarely absent; leaves alternate.
