Erigeron bloomeri is a North American species of flowering plants in the daisy family known by the common name scabland fleabane.

Erigeron bloomeri is native to the slopes, meadows, and hillsides of the western United States (California, Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, northwestern Utah).

Erigeron bloomeri is a short, small perennial herb rarely more than 20 cm (8 inches) tall, forming clumps over a taproot. It has mostly basal leaves several centimeters long which may be densely hairy to nearly hairless. Atop the short erect stems are inflorescences consisting of single flower heads. Each head is 1-2 centimeters (0.4-0.8 inches) wide and is packed with many small golden yellow disc florets, but no ray florets.

  • Erigeron bloomeri var. bloomeri - California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah
