Plant with minute flowers in umbel-like structures. Leaves have very few teeth and hairs along the edge and there are very short hairs along the stem, which is also slightly grooved. Flowers are white-purply with 5 lobes and 3 stamen with white pollen. The form of the seed pod in image 3 points to V. carinata, since it is oblong and not spherical. Image 5 shows hydrated pollen, image 6 shows dry pollen.
