shaggy soldier

Here is Galinsoga quadriradiata of the family asteraceae:

This particular plant is found throughout North America and is not native to the US.  I took this picture in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania while visiting my brother, Duff, and my sister-in-law, Anja in June of 2009.  This little flower has gather quite a few names for itself including: the common Peruvian daisy, fringed quickweed and hairy galinsoga.
