Layia jonesii is a species of flowering plant in the daisy family known by the common name Jones' tidytips, or Jones' layia.
This is an annual herb growing a glandular but unscented stem to a maximum height near half a meter. The fleshy leaves are linear to lance-shaped, with the lower ones often having lobes and reaching near 7 centimeters in maximum length.
The flower head has an urn-shaped base of rough, hairy phyllaries. The face has a fringe of yellow ray florets with white tips and a center of yellow disc florets with purple anthers. The fruit is an achene; the fruits of the disc florets sometimes have a pappus of scales.
