 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Fleabane Daisy (Dainty Daisy; Summer Starwort, Mexican Fleabane)
  • Latin Name: Erigeron spp.
  • Family Name: Asteraceae/Compositae
There is little literature on the suitability of this plant for tortoises, but it is known to be toxic to ruminants like cows and goats, and to molluscs, and has been traditionally used as an insect repellent, so it is best to avoid feeding it to your tortoise.
Not to be confused with Horseweed,  Common Fleabane, or Seaside Fleabane.
