Wahlenbergia albomarginata is a small herbaceous perennial that can grow to form large patches. The oval leaves grow in rosettes and have a white margin. Their size depends on the habitat, smaller in drier habitats, 0.2–1.6 × 0.04–0.4 in (0.5–15 cm × 1–10 mm). The flower colour is from white to pale blue, often with deeper coloured veins.

Wahlenbergia albomarginata is found in South and Stewart Islands, New Zealand, in open tussock grassland and streamsides in lowland to low alpine areas.
