Sepals subsaccate at base. Petals c. twice as long as the sepals, narrowly oblong. Stamens 6; filaments not appendaged; anthers short, obtuse. Lateral nectar glands in pairs but semiannular, open towards the outer side; middle glands absent. Ovary, linear, 16-36-ovuled; stigma bilobed, hardly conical, subsessile. Siliquae linear, torulose, bilocular, dehiscent; valves subconvex, 1-veined, pubescent with short, branched or stellate hairs; septum membranous, not veined; seeds uniseriate, suborbicular, obscurely winged.
