Perennials.  Typical height is from 3 to 5 feet.  Stems are solitary or clustered from a branched caudex or short rhizomes; glabrous  toward the base, becoming short-pubescent upwards and on branches.

Inflorescences tend to be relatively few branched.  Branches are often relatively long, ascending to widely spreading and recurved.  Flower heads are arranged one-sided on branches.

Flower heads are radiate.  Ray and disc floret corollas  are yellow.

Basal and lower stem leaves may be present at flowering.  Mid-stem leaves are lance-ovate, with toothed edges and short, winged petioles.  Upper stem leaves gradually become smaller, and have untoothed edges and lack petioles.  At least the larger leaves show a "networked" (reticulate) pattern of veins (alternatively referred to as "feather veined").

Plants of dry, upland woods, clearings and outcrops.  Flowers from mid-August to mid-September.  Native.
