Erigeron oreganus is a rare North American species of flowering plant in the daisy family, called the gorge fleabane.[1] It has been found only in the Columbia River Gorge along the border between the US states of Washington and Oregon.[1][2]

Erigeron oreganus is a perennial herb up to 15 centimeters (6 inches) tall, with a large taproot. The plant generally produces 1-4 flower heads per stem, each head with up to 60 white or pink ray florets surrounding numerous yellow disc florets. The species grows in moist, shaded cliffs and ledges.[1]
