Stems with white hair grow to as tall as 30cm and are in crowds and branch only at upper potions - neither on lower and middle parts. Leaves are 2-6mm in length and have a linear shape. Stem apexes set many 7-10mm-in-diameter flower heads; involucral bracts are white and dry-membraneous. Bloom time: August-September.
