Stems sparsely clustered, ascending, simple, white villous, apically glandular hairy. Basal leaves saccate-oblanceolate, 5–10 cm × 5–12 mm, both surfaces and margin white villous, midvein prominent, base attenuate into long petiole, apex acute, rarely rounded, mucronulate; cauline leaves oblanceolate or lanceolate, small, 3–5 cm × 4–7 mm. Cymes few flowered. Pedicel 1–3 cm, villous, glandular hairy; bracts ovate-lanceolate, small, herbaceous, densely white villous. Calyx campanulate, 1.2–1.5 cm × 4–6 mm, densely villous; longitudinal veins obscure, lilac, cohering at apex; calyx teeth triangular-ovate, 3–4 mm, margin membranous, ciliate, apex rounded or obtuse. Androgynophore 2–3 mm, glabrous. Petals red, ca. 1.8 cm; claws oblanceolate, ca. 1.2 cm, glabrous, with auricles; limbs exserted beyond calyx, ovate, ca. 6 mm, deeply bifid to middle; lobes narrowly ovate, margin entire, slightly emarginate; coronal scales broad, ca. 1.5 mm, with few indented teeth. Stamens included; filaments glabrous. Styles included. Capsule ovoid, shorter than persistent calyx. Seeds dark brown, reniform, minutely tuberculate. Fl. Jul–Aug, fr.
