Plants medium-sized, grass green or glaucous, often becoming reddish orange when young changing to dark brownish especially on margins of leaves and flowers (young flowers yellowish), often coarse, 30–40 cm. Stems appressed-hairy throughout (hairs becoming looser and ± ascending distally). Leaves: stipules translucent to pale green, appearing brownish upon drying; petiole thickly, usually densely appressed-hairy throughout, rarely glabrous or sparsely hairy (on spring leaves); blade reniform to orbiculate, 7–9-lobed, margins undulate, basal sinuses narrow, middle lobes equal to longer than their half-widths; incisions absent; teeth: sometimes proximal sides at least slightly connivent, slightly concave near apex, slightly asymmetric, apex subobtuse to acute, abaxial surface with nerves hairy throughout, internerve regions ± hairy throughout, adaxial light to grass green, sometimes glaucous, margins and folds usually turning reddish orange, sparsely to densely appressed-hairy throughout or only on folds. Inflorescences: primary branches densely appressed to ascending-hairy; peduncles appressed to ascending-hairy or glabrous. Pedicels mostly glabrous or some of the proximal hairy. Flowers: epicalyx bractlet lengths 0.5 times to almost equal to sepals (narrower); hypanthium glabrous or sparsely appressed-hairy (on proximalmost flowers). Achenes not exserted.

Habitat: Moist herb slopes, willow scrub
