Flowers sessile, in linear clusters emerging from the stem between it and the decurrent edges of the leaf, each encircled at the base by numerous overlapping leathery shining chestnut-coloured oblong obtuse or boat-shaped bracts increasing in size from below upwards. Flowers small. Sepals and petals downy on the outside, lanceolate, wavy at the margins. Corona and inner organs of the flower as in the last-named species but smaller. Anthers apiculate.
