Phyllaries (pale green) oblong, midveins not winged (tips obtuse to acute, sparsely papillate). Corollas white, usually with green, sometimes purple, 8-9.5(-13) mm. Cypselae fusiform or ellipsoid, 4-5 mm (brown or purplish, 8-10-ribbed); pappi 5-6(-7) mm (readily falling). 2n = 50, 52, 56. Flowering Jul-Nov.

From Flora of Indiana (1940) by Charles C. Deam
Infrequent to frequent throughout the state. It prefers dry, open woodland, especially clayey oak slopes. It has a varied habitat, however, ranging from the woodland to the moist prairie habitat.
Much like no. 2 [Cacalia muehlenbergii (Sch. Bip.) Fernald], and hybridizing with it; stem glaucous, terete or slightly striate; lvs pale and glaucous beneath, averaging smaller, proportionately longer, and more pointed (the lower triangular-ovate), with fewer and larger teeth, or merely shallowly lobed, the sinuses smooth; 2n=50-56. Woods and moist or rather dry open places; N.J. and Pa. to s. Minn., s. to Ga., w. Fla., and Okla. (Mesadenia a.)
