Distribution and habitat
Known from a few mountainous areas of central Chile between the localities of Cerro Tabaco (32°39’S) and Altos de Chicauma (33°11’S). In Altos de Chicauma it inhabits shady, rocky outcrops on south-facing slopes, between elevations of 1200 and 1500 m above sea level. The surrounding vegetation consists of sclerophyllous forest and scrub vegetation with Cryptocarya alba, Porlieria chilensis, Quillaja saponaria and Viviania crenata (García et al. (2018).

Evergreen shrub 0.3–0.6 m tall.
Similar to H. decurrens but differs by having cauline leaves mostly obovate to suborbicular (vs. oblong to oboblong wider than 2.5 cm (vs. 1 or less cm wide), capitula sessile to subsessile (vs. short-pedunculate), and phyllaries recurved with three conspicuous parallel veins abaxially (vs. straight with one conspicuous vein) (García et al. 2018).
