This is an inconspicuous plant with seriously small lavender flowers, no more than 3–5 mm across, appearing in small, dense clusters. It has a slender, prostrate to decumbent stem, branched from the base. The leaves are linear to round, toothed or not and with bristly hairs or not.
The plant is not common but fairly widespread in Monterey County. The photographs were taken on Mount Madonna in Santa Clara County.
