Inflorescence: heads radiate, generally in flat-topped or +- panicle-like clusters or in tight groups; involucre bell- or urn-shaped, hemispheric, or +- obconic, 2--13+ mm diam; phyllaries 3--35 in 1 series, +- linear to lanceolate or oblanceolate, each generally 1/2 enclosing a ray ovary, falling with fruit, +- hairy and sessile- or stalked-glandular; receptacle flat to convex, glabrous or minutely bristly; paleae in 1 series between ray and disk flowers in annual or in 2--3+ series or subtending all or most disk flowers in shrubs, fused or free, phyllary-like, more scarious. Ray Flower: 3--35; corolla deep or pale yellow. Disk Flower: ; Fruit: ray nearly round in ×-section (except +- flattened adaxially) or +- 3-angled (abaxially generally +- widely 2-faced, adaxially +- flattened to slightly bulging), generally +- arched, glabrous, tip +- beaked, beak offset adaxially, ascending, pappus 0; disk fruit generally 0, disk pappus generally of 1--15 generally linear to lanceolate, entire or fringed to deeply cut scales, sometimes 0 or crown-like.
