Roots robust, lig-nified. Stems caespitose, erect, multibranched, shortly villous or subglabrous, viscid. Basal leaves oblanceolate or lanceolate, withered at anthesis, 3–8 cm × 7–12(–15) mm, both surfaces glabrous or villous when young, margin ciliate, midvein promi-nent, base attenuate into short petiole. Cauline leaves with short sterile axillary branches, gradually smaller than basal leaves. Flowers bisexual, 2(–2.5) cm in diam., erect, in a lax few flowered thyrse; cymules with peduncles ca. as long as or short-er than pedicels, opposite, 1–3-flowered. Pedicel 3–12(–15) mm, slender; bracts linear, 5–10 mm, ciliate. Calyx narrowly tubular, (2.2–)2.5–3 cm × ca. 3 mm, glabrous, inflated above and clavate in fruit, longitudinal veins green or violet; teeth 1.5–2 mm. Androgynophore 1–1.5(–1.7) mm in fruit, glabrous. Petal claws slightly exserted beyond calyx, oblanceolate, 1–1.5 cm, glabrous; limbs exserted, pale red, cuneate-obovate, ca. 1.5 cm, deeply bifid to middle or more; lobes band-shaped; coronal scales ligulate, small. Stamens and styles slightly exserted; fila-ments glabrous. Styles 3. Capsule 1.2–1.5 cm × ca. 4 mm, shorter than to equalling persistent calyx. Seeds dark brown, orbicular-reniform, slightly flattened, ca. 1 mm. Fl. Jun–Aug, fr. Jul–Sep. 2n = 30*. • Plateaus, low mountain grasslands, brush.
