Physical Description
Northern Bahia is a perennial herb or subshrub about six inches tall. One to eight stems arise from a thin taproot. Fine hairs and glands on leaves and stems make plants appear gray-olive green. Leaves are opposite and parted three times into narrow segments. Each much-branched stem bears 5-20 flower heads about three eighths of an inch wide. Each head bears four to seven ray flowers that are paler yellow than the 30-40 disc flowers. Seeds (achenes) are only about an eighth of an inch long and have no long bristles to carry them in the wind.

General Information

Northern Bahia was first described for science in 1818 by the eminent English botanist-naturalist Thomas Nuttall (1786-1859). He visited the Mandan villages along the Missouri River in 1810-1811.

The generic name Picradeniopsis means "looks like Picradenia" (another plant in the family) and is derived from the Greek picros "sharp," and adenia, "gland," likely in reference to the achenes. The specific name oppositifolia means "opposite-leaved" in botanical Latin.
