Celmisia saxifraga (Asteraceae) 2:310

Celmisia saxifraga is a reasonably common alpine and subalpine rosette herb. It is reasonably similar to C. asteliifolia, but the leaves tend to be much smaller (usually less than about 4cm long) and are silvery hairy above. It is also sometimes confused with Helichrysum pumilum, which has leaves of a similar size and shape, but leaves that are green and hairless above (and also does not have ray flowers - instead it has papery bracts [phyllaries] that resemble ray flowers)
