     Plants long-lived, somewhat cespitose perennials, with woody caudices, lacking crowded, persistent leaf bases; sexual (with ellipsoid pollen) or apomictic (with spheroid pollen). Stems usually 1 per caudex branch, arising near ground surface from center of basal rosettes or laterally below sterile shoot, 0.5–2(–2.5) dm, lower parts glabrous or with scattered short-stalked, 2–6-rayed trichomes 0.1–0.2 mm, upper parts glabrous. Leaves at stem bases oblanceolate to obovate, 1.5–5.0 mm wide, entire or rarely slightly dentate, ciliate on petioles, blade surfaces densely to sparsely pubescent with short-stalked, 3–9-rayed trichomes 0.1–0.2 mm; cauline leaves 2–8(–12), not concealing stem, the uppermost glabrous or sparsely pubescent, with auricles 0.1–0.5 mm or lacking. Inflorescences mostly unbranched, 3–12(–17)-flowered; fruiting pedicels 2–6 mm, divaricate-ascending to slightly descending, slightly recurved or rarely straight, glabrous or with few appressed, branched trichomes. Flowers divaricate-ascending at anthesis; sepals glabrous or sparsely pubescent; petals purple to lavender, 3.5–6.0 ´ 1.0–1.5 mm; ovules and seeds 28–40(–44) per fruit. Fruits (1.6–)2.0–4.4 cm ´ 1.6–2.3 mm, divaricate-ascending to slightly descending, not appressed to rachises, secund, straight or curved, with parallel edges, glabrous; style 0.1–0.2 mm. Seeds uniseriate, 1.3–2.0 ´ 1.0–1.5 mm; wing continuous, 0.1–0.5 mm wide. 2n = 14.

Flowering: Jun–Aug.

Habitat: cliffs, talus slopes, and gravelly soil in alpine and subalpine habitats.

Elevation: 2150–4350 m.

Distribution: Canada (Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon), United States (Alaska, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming).

Reproductive mode: sexual diploid, apomictic triploid.
