Leaf Cup (Pale-Flowered Leaf Cup)
A tall, straight perennial, with gland-tipped or sticky hairs toward the stem tips. Flowerheads single, or few in open clusters. Ray florets white, short, with toothed ends, usually 8. Disk florets yellow, sterile. Blooms May–October. Leaves with short stalks or stalkless, with 3–5 toothed, long-stalked lobes in a pinnate (featherlike) configuration. Bases of larger leaves often with rounded, leaflike appendages at the leaf stem base, wrapping around the plant stem. The appendages at the bases of a pair of opposite leaves together form a "cup" around the node. Leaves are bluish green and very soft.
