|A thick, stout taproot supports biennial stems arising from its woody base, becoming wider on older plants as the outer stems lean outwards. Flowering on two year old stems, the clusters of chartreuse flowers have black to reddish-brown nectaries.|
|Large and rounded to mounding, more so with age.|
|Found growing on rocky slopes, roadsides, scree, open dry meadows, sparse scrub and thin evergreen forests.|
|Long, narrow, evergreen foliage more or less spirally clothe the stems.|
