Physical Description

Morphology

Description

Perennials, (20–)35–70(–80+) cm (rhizomes or caudices branched, erect to weakly creeping). Herbage floccose-tomentose to canescent, sometimes unevenly glabrescent. Stems 1–(2–5). Leaves progressively reduced distally; petiolate; blades oblong-ovate to oblanceolate, (5–)10–30 × 1.5–4(–6) cm, bases tapered, margins dentate (denticles, dark, callous; mid leaves similar, sessile, smaller; distal leaves bractlike). Heads 20–60+ in corymbiform or subpaniculiform arrays. Calyculi of 2–5 linear bractlets (lengths to 1 / 3 phyllaries). Phyllaries (± 5) ± 8, 6–8 mm, tips black. Ray florets (± 3) ± 5; corolla laminae 5–8 mm. Cypselae glabrous. 2n = 40. (A report of 2n = 46 is presumably erroneous.)
