Erigeron scopulinus, or Rock Fleabane, is native only to six counties spread throughout Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. It is also now found in cultivation among wildflower enthusiasts. A very low-growing, rare plant, it grows in rocky outcrops and ledges in these areas, where it can form mats that are full of white flowers in early spring.

This plant is most easily distinguished in the wild by its very rare nature, existing from only a few sites, as well as its low-growing habit.
