Verticillasters dense, many-flowered, distant, borne in axils of upper leaves. Bracts subulate, spinulose somewhat shorter than calyces. Flowers white or cream, sessile. Calyx not bilabiate, tubular, with 10 often ribbed veins, straight, scarcely expanding in fruit; teeth 5 to 10, equal or unequal in length, spreading in fruit with recurved to hooked tips; throat open in fruit, white-bearded or glabrous. Corolla small, bilabiate; tube straight, shortly exserted or included, glabrous within or annulate; upper lip straight, clearly bind or entire. Stamens 4, included in corolla, didynamous; thecae bilocular, divergent. Style with 2 unequal short lobes. Nutlets smooth, trigonous, apically obtuse.
