General: Woolly Easterbonnets (Antheropeas wallacei) are annual forbs that grows close to the ground, a typical "belly flower." Getting down on your belly, flower watchers will notice the small yellow, sunflower-type flowers with woolly hairs on the stems and leaves (woolly, but not cobweb-covered). The tip of the leaf is rounded, not notched.
Eriophyllum wallacei is a North American flowering plant in the family Asteraceae known by the common names woolly daisy and woolly easterbonnets. It grows in the southwestern United States (Arizona, Utah, Nevada, and California, with an isolated population in Wyoming) and northwestern Mexico (northern Baja California). It may grow in clumps or on short erect stems in sand, rocks, and gravel.
