Achimenes glabrata appears to have two forms; both have white flowers with a golden yellow throat, but one version has a pattern of fine purple spots over the central part of the corolla. The latter is the version pictured in antique prints from 1848 and 1849.

The plant grows as a loose and somewhat scraggly trailer.
