Spreading shrub 0.5–3 m high, 2–3 m wide. Branchlets subsericeous. Leaves entire, broadly ovate or broadly elliptic or sometimes almost orbicular, 20–60 mm long, 15–35 mm wide; upper surface glabrous, dull; margins very shortly recurved; lower surface densely tomentose with short curled to wavy hairs, or sometimes subtomensose with curved to wavy hairs, rarely almost subsericeous. Conflorescences usually terminal, declined, decurved, simple to 2-branched. Primary peduncles (0–)2–20(–11) mm long, sericeous to subtomentose; floral rachises 8–13 mm long. Limb of flower buds usually pyramidall in side view, apex acute. Limb-segments of tepals (mature pre-anthesis flowers) moderately to strongly keeled along external midline. Dorsal tepals 17.5–22 mm long, 1.2–2.2 mm wide. Perianth outer surface (below limb) red, densely subsericeous to subtomentose; inner surface glabrous except for beard near base. Pistil 18-24 mm long, ovary stipitate, glabrous, style red or pink-red; face of pollen presenter oblique to style, convex. Fruits glabrous. Flowers primarily Aug.-Dec., but in the absence of snow flowering can occur sporadically throughout the year.
