The Hydrophyllum tenuipes plant spreads by rhizomes to form large colonies in wooded areas. Flowers are greenish-white to lavender, appearing in mid to late spring. Five conspicuous stamen extend beyond the five petals to a length more than twice as long as the petals. Sepals bristly on margins. There are numerous clusters of flowers on stalks extending from upper leaf axils.
Hydrophyllum tenuipes grows at low to mid elevation in shady conditions often in close association with Tolmiea menziesii (Youth on Age), which blooms during the same period.
