Tridax procumbens, or Coat Buttons, is found in Texas and Florida, quite possibly having been introduced from more tropical southern areas, but some authorities list it as native. It is a tender perennial or annual that grows in fields, meadows, along roadsides and railroads and near homes, on street cracks and waste places. It blooms year round in warm areas, with medium cream flowers.

This plant looks similar to some other members of the genus. More information will be posted at a later time about differentiating other species.
