Chrysopsis scabrella, called the Coastalplain goldenaster, is a North American species of flowering plant in the aster family. It is native primarily to Florida with a few isolated populations in North and South Carolina.

Chrysopsis scabrella is a biennial herb up to 100 cm (40 inches) tall. Most of the leaves are in a rosette close to the ground. There is usually only one flowering stalk, but it can hold as many as 100 yellow flower heads in a loose array. Heads contain both ray florets and disc florets. The species grows in open areas such as fields, roadsides, and savannahs.
