Buphthalmum sagittatum Pursh, Fl. Amer. Sept. 2: 564. 1813; Balsamorhiza helianthoides (Nuttall) Nuttall; Espeletia helianthoides Nuttall; E. sagittata (Pursh) Nuttall

Plants (15—)20—40(—65) cm. Basal leaves: blades ± silvery to white or gray-green, rounded-deltate or deltate to triangular-deltate, 5—25 × 3—15 cm, bases ± cordate, margins entire, apices acute to attenuate, faces sericeous, tomentose, tomentulose, or velutinous (at least abaxially, usually gland-dotted as well), sometimes glabrescent. Heads usually borne singly, sometimes 2—3+. Involucres hemispheric to turbinate, 12—25 mm diam. Outer phyllaries lanceolate to oblance-olate or linear, (15—)20—25(—30+) mm, equaling or surpassing inner, apices acute to acuminate. Ray laminae 20—40 mm. 2 n = 38.

Flowering (Apr—)May—Jun(—Jul). Openings, banks, flats, meadows, ridges, sagebrush scrub, conifer forests; (100—)900—2500(—3000) m; Alta., B.C.; Ariz., Calif., Colo., Idaho, Mont., Nev., Oreg., S.Dak. , Utah, Wash., Wyo.

Balsamorhiza sagittata grows east of the Cascade-Sierra axis to the Rocky Mountains and Black Hills.

Balsamorhiza except B. macrophylla (a high polyploid).
