Description:Description - A varietate cognata differt, foliis membranaceis, tenuibus; calycis-tubus lobisque extus breviter rufo-tomentosis; calycis-lobis rotundatis.

Discussion:The difference between these varieties are constant but insufficient to merit specific recognition. The varieties are ecologically but not geographically isolated from each other.
