Stems are ligneous at the basal portions; limbs without setting flowers deliver 3-9cm-long, 1.5-5.5cm-in-width obovate-like spoon-shaped leaves in a rosette way. On the other hand, stems that expect flowers branch well and grow to approximately 25cm tall, with leaves oblong-like spatulate shape. Flower heads measure 3.5-4cm in diameter, ligulate corollas being blue-purple. Bloom time: October-November.
