Scale bud, anisocoma acaulis, inhabits sandy or gravelly locations in the desert, above 2,000 feet elevation. Leaves form a neat rosette on the ground, from which rise leafless, unbranched stems to heights of up to 8 inches. Flowerheads are paly yellow, darker at the center, formed of several dozen ligulate florets, which have little notches at the tip.
