There are many pink, daisy-like wildflowers in the West, sometimes difficult to distinguish. Erigeron utahensis
, commonly seem in southwest Utah and north Arizona, forms dense clusters of dozens of flower heads, each consisting of numerous (up to 40) thin petals around a yellow center composed of tiny disc flowers, and is found in rocky areas, often in alcoves. The buds are dark pink but the petals quickly become much lighter in color when open. Stems may hold one flower head or several.
