Stems usually 1 per caudex branch, arising near ground surface from center of basal rosettes, 0.3–1.4 dm, lower sith abundant short-stalked, 2–8-rayed trichomes 0.2–0.4 mm, upper parts sparsely pubescent. Leaves at stem bases linear to linear-oblanceolate, 0.5–2 mm wide, entire, often ciliate on petioles with branched trichomes to 0.6 mm, blade surfaces densely pubescent with short-stalked, 6–12-rayed trichomes 0.07–0.15 mm; cauline leaves 2–8, rarely concealing stem proximally, the uppermost densely pubescent, without auricles.
