A relatively small and insignificant flower (compared to others in the genus). Note the dense white hairs on the exterior of the corolla tube, and the interesting red and yellow shading in the throat. This species was formerly known as a Drymonia, but was transferred to Paradrymonia on the basis of its fruit form.

Side and front views of another flower shows the variation in the species — there is not as much red in the throat.
