With 0.9-1.5m-in-height, squarish stems, Scrophularia buergeriana, a perennial herb, grows in moist grasslands in mountainous regions. Leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis, with 1-2cm long pedicles; the blades are ovate, 6-8cm long, with somewhat sharp serrations on the margins. Stem's tips and upper portions' leaf axils create 20-40cm long, slender racemes, in which many flowers come densely; corollas measuring 6-7mm in length, and sepals are cleft in five. Bloom time: July-August.
