Herbs biennial, rarely perennial, 30–80 cm tall, densely pubescent and viscid throughout. Stems sparsely caespitose, erect, simple. Basal leaves oblanceolate, base attenuate into long petiole, withered at anthesis; cauline leaves sessile, lanceo-late, 3–8 cm × 3–30 mm, apex acuminate. Flowers in a race-miform thyrse. Pedicel 3–5 mm; bracts lanceolate, small. Calyx tubular-club-shaped, 1.4–2 cm × ca. 3 mm, densely pubescent, viscid, longitudinal veins not prominent; calyx teeth triangular, short, margin membranous, ciliate, apex obtuse. Androgyno-phore 2–3 mm, pubescent. Petals exserted beyond calyx, 1.5–2 cm; claws narrowly cuneate, ciliate, auricles not prominent; limbs white, multilobed, lobes linear; coronal scales absent. Sta-mens prominently exserted, to 2.5 cm; filaments ciliate. Styles exserted. Capsule globose-ovoid, 1–1.2 cm, shorter than per-sistent calyx. Seeds reniform, ca. 1 mm. Fl. Jun–Jul, fr. Jul–Aug.
