Nemophila heterophylla is an annual herb with a fleshy but delicate and usually hairy stem. The lower leaves are oppositely arranged and divided into several wide lobes. Upper leaves are smaller, narrower, and alternately arranged.
Flowers are solitary, each on a short pedicel. The flower has a calyx of sepals each a few millimetres long, pointed, and covered with long hairs, and there are reflexed appendages between the sepals. The bowl-shaped flower corolla is white or blue and a few millimeters to over a centimeter wide.
The fruit is a capsule which develops within the calyx of sepals and contains a few yellowish seeds.
