Stems 20–50 cm tall, erect, firm; lowermost internode abbreviated, pale to deep violet; with abundant simple hairs up to 3 mm long, solitary to scarce glandular hairs ca. 0.2 mm long and absent to lax stellate pubescence below, with numerous to dense straight, firm and dark simple hairs 1–2 mm long and rather sparse to rather dense glandular hairs 0.2–0.5 mm long, and rather dense stellate pubescence under the inflorescence. Creepingstolons thin and fragile, leafless underground or with spathulate leaves above the ground. Leaves pale to intensively green, basal in a rosette; rosulate 7–10 × 1–1.5 cm, spatulate, obtuse, shortly to long narrowed towards the base, entire or with a few spiculiform teeth; cauline 1–2 (uppermost reduced), like the basal but smaller and less narrowed to the base; all glabrous or hairy mostly alongside above, with numerous rigid, pale or violet-based simple hairs along the middle nerve and the margin or throughout the surface, and very rare to scarce stellate hairs along the middle nerve or throughout the surface beneath, uppermost possibly hairy and stellate on the lower surface. Inflorescence corymbiform, lax, with 5–10 capitula; branches firm, with rare simple hairs ca. 1.5 mm long, dense blackish glandular hairs 0.3–0.6(0.8) mm long and dense stellate indumentum. Involucralbracts inner 7–8 × 0.7–0.9 mm, pale olive-green with pale to whitish margins, acute at the apex, with rather rare to sparse firm dark simple hairs 1–2.5 mm long, sparse to rather sparse thin black glandular hairs 0.5–0.8 mm long and lax stellate pubescence along the middle. Flowers (10) 12–15 mm long; ligules deep yellow, sometimes with pale violet stripes backside, teeth yellow. Styles intensively dark. Achenes ca. 2 mm long.
