DESCRIPTION AND REPRODUCTION:  Young plants of this perennial herb form rosettes with leaves that are covered with dense, white, short-wooly hairs.  Upright stems that

grow from the rosettes are 0.3-0.4 meters (1-1.5 feet) tall, with closely-spaced, obovate-elliptic, hairy leaves.  The leaves are nearly as large at the top of the stem as at the bottom. 

The flower heads are arranged in a more or less flat-topped cluster.  Each head is slightly over 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) in diameter.  Both the central disc and the rays are yellow. 

This plant is short-lived, and reproduces entirely by seeds. Its seeds are apparently dispersed primarily by the wind. [1]
