Description: Four-nerve Daisy is a low, upright, silvery perennial to1 ft., from a woody base. The solitary stem is much-branched at the base forming a clump. The solitary flower heads occur at the end of silky, leafless stalks. The tip of each yellow ray flower is three-toothed. Four dark purple veins are visible on both sides of the ray. Disk flowers are also yellow. Long, narrow, silvery-green leaves are crowded mostly toward the base. Flower petals become reflexed with age and remain on the plant a long time. Flowers have an unpleasant odor when picked.
