A usually smooth and much-branched species growing from one to four feet high, with opposite, slender-stemmed leaves. It is a much more graceful and handsome plant than the common Boneset, and is not quite so frequently found. The large, thin, broadly oval leaves are taper-pointed, coarsely and sharply toothed, smooth surfaced, three-nerved and veiny. From ten to thirty tiny white florets are loosely grouped into small, fringy heads which are closely gathered in a terminal and somewhat flat-topped cluster. This plant grows from July to November, in rich woods, from Canada to Georgia, Nebraska, and the Indian Territory.
