Inflorescences 1‒1.5 cm long, rachis elongated up to 6.5 cm long in fructification, 1‒2 per axil, peduncle 3.7‒8.5 cm long, sparsely strigose, glandular sessile trichomes present; bracts unequal, external 0.9‒1 cm long, internal 7‒8 mm long, wide-ovate to ovate, abaxial surface sparsely strigose, glandular sessile trichomes present, margin ciliate; calyx 1.7‒2 mm long, truncate, sparsely strigose externally, glandular sessile trichomes present, accrescent in fruit; corolla 0.8‒1 cm long, white, throat yellow. Fruit ca. 3 mm long, external surface rugose, vinaceous to black, surrounded by the persistent calyx.
