Stem: 10--34 cm, branches generally several, spreading from below, +- tufted-woolly-hairy sometimes also glandular near base. Leaf: basal in rosette, strap-shaped, pinnate-lobed, lobes short, spreading, toothed; cauline clasping, generally deeply lobed. Inflorescence: clusters, open in fruit; pedicels glandular, glands black. Flower: calyx 3.5--6 mm, gland-dotted, lobes wider than membranes, erect or spreading in fruit; corolla 7--11 mm, tube included, purple, throat yellow, midveins occasionally purple, lobes 2--3 mm, lavender; stamens, style +- exserted. Fruit: 4--6.5 mm, <= calyx, widely ovoid. Seed: 15--30. Chromosomes: 2n=36.
Ecology: Open, rocky areas, pinyon/juniper woodland; Elevation: 400--2450 m. Bioregional Distribution: Teh, s SCoRO, TR, GB, DMtns; Distribution Outside California: Oregon, Idaho, Nevada. Flowering Time: Apr--Jun Note: If recognized taxonomically, decumbent plants in northern WTR (Mount Pinos) with lower leaves 2-pinnate-lobed, densely tufted-woolly-hairy would be assignable to Gilia tetrabreccia A.D. Grant & V.E. Grant.
