|Erigeron linearis in Wenas Wildlife Area in Washington|
Erigeron linearis is a small clumping perennial herb reaching a maximum height of 20 centimeters (8 inches), with a woody taproot. Its leaves are long and narrow, mostly clustered around the base of the stem, and are 2 to 9 centimeters (0.8-3.6 inches) long and greenish-white. The erect, somewhat hairy, leafless stems usually produce only one flower head (though occasionally 2 or 3) each about a centimeter (0.4 inches) wide. It has a center of many golden yellow disc florets and a fringe of as many as 38 pale to bright yellow or cream-colored ray florets. The species grows in open rocky slopes dominated by sagebrush, bitterbrush or juniper.
