Physical Description

Morphology

Description

Perennials, 5–55(–70) cm; rhizomatous, fibrous-rooted, caudices usually simple, thick. Stems erect to basally ascending, hirsute to hirsuto- or strigoso-villous (hairs loosely appressed, slightly crinkled), sometimes loosely strigose distally (var. thompsonii), eglandular. Leaves basal (persistent) and cauline; basal blades linear-oblanceolate to broadly lanceolate or spatulate, (30–)50–100 × 5–25 mm, cauline gradually reduced distally (bases distinctly subclasping, except when greatly reduced), margins entire, faces hirsute, hirsuto-villous, sparsely villosulous, glabrate, or glabrous, eglandular. Heads 1. Involucres 5–9(–12) × 10–22(–25) mm. Phyllaries in 2–3(–4) series (margins usually ciliate), abaxially sparsely to moderately villoso-hirsute, usually eglandular, sometimes sparsely gland-dotted apically, rarely sparsely so over adaxial faces (especially in var. thompsonii). Ray florets 30–80; corollas usually blue to rose purple or pink, sometimes white to pale blue, 12–20(–25) mm (mostly 1.5–3 mm wide), laminae coiling. Disc corollas 3.5–4.5 mm. Cypselae 2.5–2.8 mm, (4–)5(–7)-nerved, faces sparsely strigose; pappi: outer of setae, inner of 20–32 bristles.

It is a perennial daisy reaching anywhere from 10 to over 40 centimeters in height. It has hairless to hairy leaves reaching up to 20 centimeters long at the base of the branching stem. The inflorescence has many glandular hairs and one to four flower heads, each one to two centimeters wide.
