Madia elegans are covered with short, stiff hairs. Glands are borne on stalks, especially near the flowers. The foliage exudes a fragrant oil, hence the common name of tarweed. It may be solid lemon yellow or have a center of a different color, from white to maroon. Several strongly scented, uncrowded, flower heads grow at the end of a slender green stem.
