Slender pussy-toes is a perennial wildflower with several upright stems arising from 10-60 cm high from creeping, leafy stolons. The herbage of the stems is thinly tomentose below and evidently glandular above. The basal leaves are short-petiolate with elliptic t elliptic-ovate or elliptic-obovate blades. The blades range from 1.5-8 cm long and 1-5 cm wide with a persistent cottony-tomentose lower surface and green and typically hairless upper surfaces (as seen in the photo above).
The inflorescence consists of a racemiform series of several flower heads, each flower head at the end of a long, slender stalk (as seen at right). The involucres are only lightly or scarcely tomentose. The involucres of the broader male flower heads range from 4-5 mm high while those of the narrower female heads range from 6-8 mm high. The tiny flowers are white.
Slender pussy-toes is a wildflower of moist forest openings from middle to higher elevations in the mountains.
Antennaria racemosa is found from British Columbia and Alberta south to Washington, Oregon, central Idaho and Wyoming.
