Inflorescence shorter than the leaves. Flowers usually produced in groups of three (triads), each triad on a peduncle about 5-15 mm long. Calyx lobes about 2-2.6 mm long, pubescent on both surfaces. Petals about 8-10 x 6.5-7.5 mm, outer surface clothed in numerous short hairs just visible with a x10 lens. Ovary pubescent at the apex. Ovules about 14-16 per locule. Stigma capitate.


Infructescence not exceeding the leaves. Fruits +/- globular, about 6.5-11 x 4.5-7 mm., calyx lobes persistent at the apex. Seeds flattened, about 1.5-2 mm diam. Embryo U-shaped.


Cotyledons almost orbicular, about 2-4 x 2-3 mm, petiolate, apex mucronate. First pair of true leaves hairy on the upper surface but mainly glabrous below. At the tenth leaf stage: leaf blade +/- elliptic, apex acute or obtuse, base cuneate, both the upper and lower surfaces sparsely hairy; oil dots rather sparse, visible with a x10 lens. Terminal buds and young shoots densely clothed in pale prostrate hairs. Two lateral veins usually more prominent than the rest.
