Herbs erect, to 10 dm, sometimes branching from near base, sometimes with ascending branches in distal 1/2+. Stems: internodes 2-lined at first, then terete.

The absence of laminar glands in leaves is a more reliable characteristic for differentiating Triadenum tubulosum from T. walteri than sessile versus petiolate leaves, which are not always quite sessile towards the inflorescence in T. tubulosum, or sepals, which can be obtuse in both.
