Engelmannia peristenia is a branching perennial herb up to 100 cm (40 inches) tall. Leaves at the base can be up to 30 cm (1 foot) long, with the leaves progressively getting smaller higher on the stem. The plant produces many small flower heads, each generally with 8 ray florets and 40-50 disc florets.
