A flat to mounding nearly non-frost tolerant perennial that will 'disappear' to the roots under stress. According to Parsons "The stout root . . . is sometimes eaten by the Indians." The flowers are yellow and it grows in the loose,shifting beach sand of the foredunes along the immediate coast. The soil must be very loose and free of organic debris. The plant is geared for salt spray and will not tolerate regular water nor extreme drought. Beach sand, 100-200 ft.(30-60 meters) from the surf.
