The upper lip of the corolla has a long upward curving beak which encloses the style. Two petals of the lower lip are shaped like ears. Together, the parts of this irregular flower have an amazing resemblance to an elephant's head. The height of the plant varies from 10 to 20 inches, and the leaves are all pinnately divided and quite fern-like.

Zwinger and Willard report that a moss campion plant may be 10 years old before flowering begins, since early growth energy goes into establishing a root system up to 4 or 5 feet deep that accumulates water and anchors the plant against almost constant wind. Each flower has five notched petals, five sepals, and ten delicate stamens. The leaves are short, narrow, and very close together, giving the cushion a mosslike appearance.
