Small, erect plant with a cluster of fuzzy balls
of white flowers at the top of the stem. Each ball is a
group of disc flowers similar to the disc flowers in the center
of a daisy or sunflower. Narrow, oval leaves are basal,
and sometimes on the stem, green above, whitened underneath.
Blooms in early spring in semi-shady areas under trees.
Common along the forest edge on the east slope
of the Park, especially near the Grand Staircase.
The little fuzzy balls atop the stem and early
spring blooming make pussytoes easy to tell from most other
plants; however, there are many species of pussytoes and they
are hard to tell apart. So far, only one species has been
reported in the Park.
