The flower-tube is twice as long as the sepal cup. Sepal cup is often tinged with purple, bell-shaped, 5--8 mm, glandular, parted to the middle, sepals ovate to ovate-oblong, tip blunt to pointed. Flowers are dark purple to rich maroon, rarely white, tube 1-1.4 cm, limb 1.5-3.5 cm wide, petals broadly obovate to circular, notched.
