The whole plant is covered in short hairs. The leaves are finely divided with narrow, parallel-sided segments, pointed at the tips and have a pleasant, chamomile-like scent. The 'flowers', borne singly on stout stalks, are technically compound flower-heads made up of numerous small florets and resemble a Daisy. The central florets are yellow, while around the edge are the ray-florets, which have a single long white petal pointing outwards.

Among the yellow florets are numerous small chaff-like scales approximately 2.5 mm long and 1 mm wide, tapering to a point. The flowers are larger than those of other mayweeds, and can be up to 4 cm across. In the fully mature flower, the central yellow disk becomes somewhat hemispherical.
