Elliota paniculata is a deciduous shrub found in forest edges or craggy places in hilly districts, growing to 1-2m in height. Several leaves gather on branch tips together. Blades measure 2-6cm long and 1-3cm wide, in an oblong-ovate-like long oblong shape, with sharp angles, bases cuneate, gradually becoming narrow to stream into peduncles, and margins entire and somewhat wavy. Branch tips erect 5-10cm-long panicles and set many pale red flowers in them; corollas cleft in 3; the lobes are about 1cm long, 3mm wide, narrow, long oblong, and bend backward. Stamens are 6, and pistils pop out straight from the flowers. Bloom time: August-September.
