Galinsoga parviflora was brought from Peru to Kew Gardens in 1796, and later escaped to the wild in Britain. In Britain its name Galinsoga is sometimes popularly rendered as "gallant soldiers", and then sometimes altered to "soldiers of the Queen". In the United States it is called "hairy galinsoga".
G. quadriradiata (synonym G. ciliata) is also called "shaggy soldiers". It is very similar to Galinsoga parviflora but less hairy.
