Stems with long spreading hairs. Leaves sparsely hairy. Flowers hairy on the outside and towards the base on the inside.
Annual. Locally common on periodically moist sandy soils in low rainfall areas. Seed becomes jelly-like on wetting and sticks it to the soil to aid germination, an adaptation for dry environments.
