The Long-stalked Featherflower grows either as a straggly open plant or a bushy, multi-branched shrub, up to 60 cm tall and 60 cm in diameter. It has grayish-green, needle-like leaves on the lower part of the plant, and shorter, broader floral leaves. During summer, the plants are covered with small, dense to open, rounded groups of attractive pale to dark pink and white flowers. These fade to white as they age, continually changing and thus creating a slightly variegated appearance. The small flowers attract insects with their colour and honey scent.
