Chelonopsis moschata is a 0.6-1m in-height perennial herb
in damp places in mountainous valleys. The phyllotaxis is alternate;
the leaves are long-oblong shaped, 10-20cm long, with short, 5-12mm
long petioles, with margins with coarse serrations, and fine hairs
as with stems. Axils on the stem's upper parts emerge short
peduncles and set 1-3 red-purple labiate flowers; the corollas
measure 4-4.5cm in length. Giving a shake to the stems or the leaves
allegedly sends a smell of musk. Bloom time: August-September.
