It's in the genus Aster (sensu lato). There's probably a couple of hunderd species in the genus. Do a goolgle search for Aster images and you could narrow it down to one of several species that look like this.

Are you certain it's fleabane? From looking at both photos I think the leaves are different between the two. We have something similar growing here, don't know what it is.

Chuck's picture does look like rough fleabane. The other picture is annual fleabane.

not chamomile. This is an Erigeron sp. It is called fleabane because people used to put it under their rugs to help keep fleas away. I don't know if it works.
