Help to ID a Broadleaf Rosette "Weed" in eastern PA

Asked August 16, 2016, 10:05 AM EDT

Hello! This "weed" started popping up everywhere in my lawn and garden in the beginning of August. I have been searching the Internet and I can't seem to identify it. Thoughts?

We would guess this is a type of fleabane, perhaps Philadelphia fleabane.
It would be good in a meadow setting, but not within lawn turf, as it wants to grow tall to bloom.
