Plants short-lived perennials, with mostly non-woody caudices, lacking crowded, persistent leaf bases; apomictic, with spheroid pollen. Stems usually 1 per caudex, arising near ground surface from center of basal rosettes, (1.0–)2.5–6.5 dm, lower parts with abundant short-stalked, 7–12-rayed trichomes 0.1–0.2 mm, upper parts densely to sparsely pubescent. Leaves at stem bases oblanceolate, 1–4(–8) mm wide, entire, ciliate on petioles with simple trichomes to 1 mm, blade surfaces densely pubescent with short-stalked, 3–10-rayed trichomes 0.2–0.7 mm; cauline leaves (7–)12–35, concealing stem proximally, the uppermost densely pubescent, with auricles 0.5–2 mm. Inflorescences mostly unbranched, 10–65-flowered; fruiting pedicels 5–15 mm, divaricate-ascending to horizontal, straight or slightly curved downward, with few appressed, branched trichomes. Flowers ascending at anthesis; sepals pubescent; petals lavender to purplish, 5–8 ´ 1.2–2.0 mm, glabrous; ovules 74–134 per fruit. Fruits 3.7–6.5 cm ´ 1.5–2.2 mm, divaricate-ascending to widely pendent, not appressed to rachises, not secund, curved or rarely straight, with parallel edges, glabrous; style 0.05–0.20 mm. Seeds subbiseriate or rarely uniseriate, 1.7–2.0 ´ 1–1.5 mm; wing continuous, 0.1–0.2 mm wide. 2n = 21.
