Tidy-tips is a wildflower native to western North America that blooms once a year. It's a daisy-like, annual glandular plant with small, rough hairy leaves. The entire plant stands less than a foot tall and is around 4–12 inches (10–30 cm) thick. Taproots are the most common type of root, but fibrous roots can also be found. The three-toothed white tips of the ray flowers contrast with the deep-yellow petal bases.
