Erigeron denalii is a North American species of flowering plants in the daisy family known by the common name Denali fleabane. It is found in Alaska, Yukon, British Columbia, and Northwest Territories.[2]

Erigeron denalii is a very short perennial herb rarely more than 5 cm (2 inches) tall; each stem generally has only one flower head, with 30–55 white or lavender ray florets surrounding numerous yellow disc florets.[3]

The species is named for Denali, the tallest mountain in North America.[4]
