    Some plants in this species produce seeds in the usual manner, by fertilization of eggs in the ovary, but others do not require fertilization. The tightly clustered basal leaves and the near absence of dark bases on the bracts of the flower heads help distinguish Dwarf Pussytoes from other members of this large genus.
