    A vigorous scandent shrub
    Stem and branches subterete, not aculeate, glabrescent; young branches 4-angled, sparsely to densely hispid; indumentum comprised of tubercle-based gland-tipped hairs intermixed with scattered longer soft bristle-like hairs, densest at the nodes and toward the branch apices; tubercle-bases occasionally accrescent making older branchlets slightly scabridulous to the touch
    Leaves opposite, petiolate, (3)3.5–12 × (1.5)2–6.5 cm, ovate or oblong-ovate, ± acuminate at the apex, truncate or rounded at the base and cuneate to slightly decurrent into the petiole, closely crenate or crenulate on the margins, ± densely hispid on the upper surface in young leaves becoming scabrid with the tubercle-bases persisting in older leaves, pubescent-hispid to almost tomentose beneath in young leaves with hairs patent and not markedly tubercle-based, densest on the raised venation, with ± impressed nerves and reticulation above, raised reticulate beneath, drying dark above and paler beneath; petiole 0.7–2.5 cm long, slender, with indumentum similar to that on the branchlets
    Peduncles solitary in leaf axils, ascending-erect to ± spreading, up to 10 cm long at anthesis, up to 13 cm long and becoming rigid and somewhat thickened below the spike in fruit; indumentum similar to that on the branchlets
    Flowers in ± hemispherical heads 2–3 cm in diameter, spikes not elongating in fruit; bracts linear-lanceolate, the outer up to c. 9 × 2 mm, acute, hispid with long white bristle-like hairs densest on the margins
    Calyx c. 2 mm long, thin membranous
    Corollas ± exceeding the bracts, variously coloured, the outer deep pink, the inner orange, red magenta or pale yellow with the innermost deep yellow; tube c. 10 mm long, narrowly cylindric ± swollen about the middle, puberulous outside; limb 2.5–4 mm in diameter, the median lobe of lower lip larger than the lateral lobes
    Drupes c. 5 mm in diameter, steel-blue on ripening.
    Material of White 1807 in FHO is a mixture of L. camara and L. tiliifolia var. glandulosa .  The latter element has been indicated by myself as 1807A, a duplicate of which is in K.
    Native of  south tropical America.   Cultivated as a garden ornamental and as a hedge plant, it has become locally naturalized; 1250–1630 m.
