Scentless Mayweed - Tripleurospermum inodorum
Erect, branched low to medium plant with feathery leaves. Flowerheads are white with a yellow disc, not aromatic, the white rays not reflexing fully after opening, and the disc cone not hollow.
Scentless and Scented Mayweed look virtually the same and are best distinguished by the presence or absence of an aromatic smell when the flowers are crushed.
Cultivated and arable land, waste ground.
July to September.
Common throughout much of Britain, but scarcer in the north.
Very common in Leicestershire and Rutland. In the 1979 Flora survey of Leicestershire it was found in 600 of the 617 tetrads.
