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.
