With its attractive white to light purple-pink flowers and ornamental foliage, this species is a pleasure for any moist subtropical garden, ideal for hanging baskets and containers.

It has broadly elliptic to broadly ovate leaves that are covered with short stiff hairs and colourless glands. The lower leaf surface is often purple and the leaf margins are noticeably hairy with pairs of shallow teeth. The flowerheads are terminal, simple and racemose, often with a pair of side branches near the base. Flowers are sessile, white to light purple-pink, and arranged in 3-flowered cymes. The 1.5mm long nutlets are dark brown and attached inside the calyx. Flowering time is mainly in the summer rainfall months (late summer to winter) between mid-February and June, with its peak in April.
