The leaves are elongated, relatively narrow, pointed and slightly hairy and grow without petioles and densely around the stems. These leaves are fragrant and have a spicy taste.
The flowers are small, purple-pink, slightly elongated, almost trumpet-shaped and tabular, and grow densely next to the upper leaves of the plant. Each flower has four rounded edges.
