Marshallia trinervia has clusters of ovate, and glossy green basal leaves that put up several central flower stalks. The flowers are pink to white in compact globular heads with distinctive trumpet-shaped ray flowers lining the outer edges.

This plant occurs naturally on seepy calcareous riverbanks. Coarse sand mixed with the soil before planting and consistently moist soil will help it thrive.
