The leaves are subsessile, decurrent oblanceolate and entire, reaching 19 cm. long in cultivated material.

The calyx-lobes are oblong, and the pink, red or purple flowers, which attain 9 mm. in diameter, have ovate obtuse corolla-lobes.

The anthers in this species dehisce by apical pores, but I suspect that the pores expand into longitudinal slits as the anthers age.
