Importance and distribution in Luxembourg
The first documented observation of the species in Luxembourg dates from 1961. It was found by Léopold Reichling on 10th June 1961 in Huesegrond (Municipality of Esch-sur-Alzette). With 23 occurrences in different areas of the country (18/01/2018), the species is considered isolated.
Erigeron annuus, tall fleabane, is a plant that often populates ruderal sites. Because of its ability to form dense stands, the species can become problematic from a nature conservation point of view, if it enters established natural plant communities.
ISEIA protocol: C1 (2+2+1+1) (Ries et al. 2013: 18).
