Gnaphalium affine, an annual or biennial herb common on roadsides or fields, grows 15-40cm in height; the whole is with lanate (or fine fluff) - it looks whitish. Radical leaves are gone in their flowering time. On-stem leaves measure 2-6cm in length and 0.4-1.2cm in width in a spatulate or oblanceolate shape. Stem tips make short branches and set many small yellow flower heads on them. Involucres are approximately 3mm long, spherical-bell form; involucral bracts are light yellow.
