Description
 
 

The stem is hairy, branching, twisted, and jointed at the leaf axils giving it a zigzag appearance.

Upper leaves are stalkless and may be slightly clasping. Larger leaves, those below the branch, may be strongly clasping. The underside is pale but is not covered with a whitish, waxy coating (glaucous). The leaf margins have a fringe of hairs that is visible to the naked eye.

The flowers hang singly on stems up to 2 long that are twisted or have an abrupt bend in the middle. They have 3 petals and 3 petal-like sepals (tepals) that turn backward only at the tip. The tepals are pink or maroon.

The fruit is a bright red, more or less round berry.
