Baccharis tola

A few weeks earlier and I would have seen all this as flowers – a beautiful sight I imagine. Baccharis tola seems abundant here, and is undoubtedly able to spread far and wide with the wind.

The amount of seeds per plant is staggering, and sometimes so many are released that it looks like smoke or sand being whipped up.

Altitude: 3989 metres.

Native range is Peru to Argentina.
