Stems 1, erect, simple, straight to ± flexuous, glabrous or sparsely villous, stipitate-glandular, more densely so distally (at least in arrays). Leaves basal and cauline, thick, firm, margins coarsely serrate (proximal) to crenate-serrate or entire (distal), scabrous, teeth mucronate, apices acuminate, sharply mucronate, abaxial faces glabrescent to sparsely strigose, veins stipitate-glandular, adaxial sparsely strigose, ± densely villous on veins, short-stipitate-glandular (more so on distal); basal withering by flowering, petioles (25—)80—170 mm, ± winged, bases sheathing, ciliate, blades broadly ovate, (45—)110—250 × (25—)55—150 mm, bases deeply cordate (sinuses curved), sometimes slightly oblique; cauline petiolate (3—110 mm), gradually more broadly winged and sometimes ± auriculate distally, ± clasping, ciliate, to subpetiolate or sessile, blades broadly ovate to ovate, 22—104 × 9—80 mm, gradually reduced distally, bases cordate to rounded or attenuate to cuneate; distal (arrays) sessile, blades ovate or broadly lanceolate or elliptic to obovate or oblanceolate, 9—38 × 3—13 mm, abruptly reduced distally, bases ± clasping to rounded or cuneate (arrays), margins crenate-serrate or entire. Heads (2—)8—90+ in flat-topped, corymbiform arrays. Peduncles firm, 0—4 cm, densely stipitate-glandular; bracts 0—2, ovate-lanceolate, ± stipitate-glandular. Involucres broadly campanulate to campanulate, (6—)7—11 mm, shorter than pappi. Phyllaries 32—35 in 5—6 series, appressed, often purple-tinged, usually obovate to oblong, seldom ovate (outer) to oblanceolate or linear-lanceolate (inner) (innermost to 7 mm), strongly unequal, bases indurate, keeled or rounded adaxially, dark green zones wide, 1 / 3 — 1 / 2 distal portion (rarely to base in outer) to less pronounced along midveins or none (inner), margins hyaline or reddish, scarious, ± erose, densely villoso-ciliate apically, apices obtuse to rounded or acute (inner), adaxial faces ± villous, ± stipitate-glandular. Ray florets 9—20; corollas ± deep lavender or violet to occasionally white, (7—)11—15 × 1.4—2.4 mm. Disc florets 20—40; corollas cream-color or light yellow, becoming purple, 6—7.5 mm, slightly ampliate, tubes (ca. 4 mm) longer than funnelform throats (ca 1.2 mm), lobes reflexed, lanceolate, 1—1.6 mm. Cypselae brown, fusiform or cylindro-obconic, compressed, 2.6—4.5 mm, ribs 7—12 (golden brown), faces glabrous or sparsely strigillose distally; pappi of tawny to orangish (sometimes clavellate) bristles 5—7.5 mm, slightly longer than disc corollas. 2 n = 72.

Flowering late summer—early fall (late Aug—Oct). Moist to dry soils, hemlock-northern hardwoods, beech-maple or pine forests, Appalachian spruce-fir forests, aspen, pine or open spruce woodlands, thickets, clearings, shaded roadsides; 0—1300 m; Man., N.B., N.S., Ont., P.E.I., Que.; Conn., Del., D.C., Ga., Ill., Ind., Iowa, Ky., Maine, Md., Mass., Mich., Minn., Mo., N.H., N.J., N.Y., N.C., Ohio, Pa., R.I., Tenn., Vt., Va., W.Va., Wis.; introduced in n Europe.

Eurybia macrophylla , a species of the northeastern deciduous or mixed forest, extends north into the southern boreal forest of Ontario-Quebec, and south along the Blue Ridges into northern Georgia.
