An evergreen shrub 2 to 4 ft high (6 ft in the wild); branches erect, two-angled. Leaves 1 to 2 in. long, usually less than 14 in. wide, linear-lanceolate, recurved at the edges. Flowers very numerous, in compact cymose panicles; each flower 12 in. across. Fruits three-celled, slender, 14 in. long, subtended by the five oval-oblong, spreading sepals.

Native of the pine-barrens from New Jersey to Florida, and from Kentucky west to Arkansas and Texas. It is a near ally of the commoner H. prolificum, but is smaller in flower and narrower in leaf; its fruit also is more slender.
