It is found only in the Appalachian Mountains of the eastern United States, in the States of Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Georgia.[5]

Eutrochium steelei is a perennial herb sometimes as much as 200 cm (78.5 in; 6.5 ft) tall. Stems are greenish-purple, not hollow. One plant can produce many small pink or purple flower heads, each head with 5-10 disc flowers but no ray flowers.[6]
