     Plants long-lived, 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, 0.3–1.5(–2) dm, glabrous throughout. Leaves at stem bases linear-oblanceolate, 1–5(–8) mm wide, margin entire, usually ciliate at least proximally with simple and/or short-stalked, 2- or 3-rayed trichomes 0.1–0.3 mm, blade surfaces (occasionally the entire leaf) glabrous or rarely the youngest leaves of sterile shoots pubescent with 4–6-rayed trichomes 0.05–0.10 mm; cauline leaves 1–5, mostly not concealing stem, glabrous, with auricles 0.5–1.5 mm or rarely lacking. Inflorescences unbranched, 2–10(–15)-flowered; fruiting pedicels 3–8(–15) mm, erect, straight, glabrous. Flowers erect at anthesis; sepals glabrous; petals lavender to purplish, 6.0–8.5 ´ 1.5–3.0 mm, glabrous; ovules 34–64 per fruit. Fruits 3.0–5.6 cm ´ 1.5–2.5 mm, erect, appressed to rachises, not secund, straight, with parallel edges, glabrous; style 0.1–0.7 mm. Seeds biseriate or subbiseriate, 1.5–2.0 ´ 1.0–1.5 mm; wing continuous, 0.3–0.5 mm wide.
