Does is have a herby scent? How tall is is? Possibly Matricaria chamomilla or Matricaria arvensis but I don't know if either would grow in Alaska. Or is there an Anchorage in Colorado?

If it's not scented then it could be the scentless chamomile (Tripleurospermum inodorum) or it could be false mayweed. Both of these grow in Alaska.

RE: daisy but feathery leaves, Alaska

I'm on a family trip in Anchorage, Alaska right now and my mother-in-law was interested in this plant. We have also seen Shasta daisies or something similar in other places.

I didn't notice much of a scent and the plants get taller than my knees. The scentless chamomile picture looks very much like what we have been seeing. I'll try to take better pictures.

There also is a tiny plant that grows in cracks in sidewalks etc. that some people around here call chamomile.
