The leaves are heart-shaped and the underside of the leaf is densely covered with silvery white pubescence. In summer, clusters of light purple-red flowers grow from the leaf axils. The flowers are funnel-shaped, with a dark purple center, and are so large that pots can be inserted into them for nectar feeding.
