- A small, loosely mat-forming daisy, with prostrate stems and upright branchlets. Small (2-3 mm long) narrow leaves are densely clad in white hair. Unlike most other Raoulia species, the leaves are borne in two rows along the stem and thus branchlets have a flattened appearance. Small (5 mm) flower heads are borne terminally.
