Small plant to 30cm. Leaves usually have purple tips. Tiny mauve flowers in the mornings are finished by evening. Each leaf node has a number of flowers and fruit/pods at different stages of development but only one flower opens at a time at one node.
The original plant was collected for taxonomic research a number of years ago and has become a weed in the dry part of the UKZN Botany Gardens especially in the lawns.
