Plants mostly long-lived perennials, often with woody caudices, lacking crowded, persistent leaf bases ; apomictic, with spheroid pollen. Stems usually 1 per caudex branch, elevated on woody bases or produced near ground surface, arising from center of basal rosettes, 1.5–4.5 dm, lower parts with abundant, short-stalked, 2–7-rayed trichomes 0.2–0.5 mm (occasionally mixed with a few large trichomes proximally), upper parts sparsely pubescent. Leaves at stem bases linear-oblanceolate, 2–5 mm wide, entire or denticulate, ciliate on petiole base swith simple trichomes to 1 mm, blade surfaces densely pubescent with short-stalked, 4–8-rayed trichomes 0.15–0.40s mm; cauline leaves 3–8, not concealing stem, the uppermost sparsely pubescent, with auricles 0.7–2.0 mm. Inflorescences mostly unbranched, 11–22-flowered; fruiting pedicels 7–14 mm, horizontal, straight or slightly curved, with appressed, branched trichomes.
