Hulsea nana is a species of flowering plant in the daisy family known by the common name dwarf alpinegold. It is native to western North America from Washington to northern California, where it grows in the talus of volcanic mountains and plateaus. This is a compact perennial herb producing clumps of hairy foliage and stout stems up to 20 centimeters tall. The leaves are 2 to 6 centimeters long and have lobed edges and many glandular hairs. The stem usually bears a single robust flower head with layers of hairy to woolly phyllaries. The center of the head is packed with golden disc florets and the circumference is lined with golden ray florets each about a centimeter long.
