This perennial's erect, herbaceous plant stems may be isolated, but they typically grow in clusters of 1-2 feet long. Several stems carry narrow, crowded heads with slender wands of rose-lavender flowers. When they intermingle with the tufted flowers, a slew of narrow leaves cling to the stem. Disk flowers form a lavender spike that encircles the top third or half of the stem.
