|A fairly common wildflower in southern, central, and western Arizona. The plant has clasping, narrow leaves, and a thin stalk which is capped by a white many-petalled flower like a white dandelion. This species is partial to thin, rocky soil and reliably germinates from seed, but can be prone to rot.
