General Information

Plants (20–)40–90(–100) cm; caudices woody. Stems 1–4 , erect, straight, glabrous or moderately hirtello-strigose. Leaves: basal withering by flowering; proximal to mid cauline weakly petiolate or sessile, blades lanceolate to elliptic, (36–)95–150(–180) × (10–)19–43(–60) mm, margins serrate (with (3–)8–20(–36) teeth), faces glabrous or sparsely hairy, more so along nerves; distal cauline sessile, blades narrowly lanceolate to narrowly elliptic, (5–)37–90(–130) × (3.5)5–18(–34) mm, margins entire to sparsely serrate (0–9(–14) teeth), faces glabrous or sparsely hairy, sometimes more pilose along nerves. Heads 20–800 in short axillary and terminal racemiform/paniculiform, non-secund arrays (2–)8.5–38.5(–65) cm. Peduncles 2–6 mm, moderately to densely finely strigose; bracteoles 0–3, linear-oblong. Involucres narrowly campanulate, (5–)5.6–7(–8) mm. Phyllaries in 3–4 series, strongly unequal, outermost 1–1.4(–2) mm, innermost (2.5–)3–4(–4.4) mm, obtuse to acute, 1-nerved. Ray florets 2–4(–6); laminae (2–)2.5–4(–4.6) × 1–2 mm. Disc florets 3–7(–9); corollas mostly 2–3 mm, lobes 1–1.7(–2.4) mm.

    "Plants 3–15 dm from a short and caudex-like to occasionally more elongate rhizome, the stem striate-angled and grooved, glabrous or hairy; lvs chiefly cauline, ± serrate, acuminate, glabrous or evidently hairy, numerous, lanceolate to narrowly elliptic, mostly 10–18 × 1–4(–4.5) cm, 3–10 times as long as wide, tapering to the sessile or obscurely short-petiolate base; infl largely or wholly of axillary clusters shorter than their subtending lvs (or in robust forms many of the clusters elongate and leafy-bracteate), the terminal segment sometimes thyrsoid and nearly naked; invol (2.5–)3–5(–6) mm, glabrous or short-hairy but not glandular, its bracts 1-nerved or obscurely nerved to ± evidently 3-nerved, seldom any of them as much as 1 mm wide at or above midlength; rays (2)3–5(6); disk-fls 4–9; achenes hairy; 2n=18. Mt. woods, but not at the highest elev.; Va., W.Va., Tenn., and Ga. (S. pubens, the hairy phase)"
