Boscabel Conostylis is a tufted perennial herb 15-30 cm in height. The distinctive leaves are flat and rough with shaggy white hairs over the entire surface and margins and are coarse to touch. The yellow flowers appear in clusters of 5-10 flowers on stalks that are usually shorter than the leaves. Flowering occurs between October and November with flowers changing to red with age.
