Character Abstract
Identification Comments:Most distinctive features are the large pink-rayed heads, nearly leafless stems, relatively large basal leaves, and the glandular nature of the rather coarse spreading pubescence (Mozingo and Williams 1980).
Subspecies Comments:
Phenology Comments:Flowers in June and July.
Reproduction Comments:Apparently reproduces by seed only; wind and gravity dispersal primarily, although insects, small mammals, and birds may also be important.
Habitat Comments:Shallow, relatively barren, vernally saturated, otherwise dry, gravelly to sandy soils or bedrock on flats and slopes of volcanic scablands or benches, mostly rhyolitic or basaltic in composition, in the sagebrush steppe and juniper zones with Artemisia arbuscula, A. tridentata, etc.
Ecology Comments:
Inventory Comments:Systematic surveys have been conducted in Nevada but remain incomplete.
