Leafy Elephant Foot
Elephantopus carolinianus /Aster Family
I have never found why this flower has such a strange name! It is a member of the Aster family. A close relative is called Devil's Grandmother (following flower)! Another wierd name! It has large basal leaves but no large leaves on the stem like this plant.
Where seen: Oak Ridge Greenways, Big Ridge SP, Big South Fork NRRA
