Bradburia pilosa (soft goldenaster) is a North American species of flowering plants in the daisy family, native to the south-central United States, primarily the southeastern Great Plains and lower Mississippi Valley, in the states of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Alabama. Additional populations are reported farther east (from Florida to Virginia) but these appear to be introductions.

Bradburia pilosa is an annual up to 80 cm (32 inches) tall with yellow flower heads. Disc florets are fertile, unlike in the closely related B. hirtella.
