Usually flowers and fruits as a shrub about 1-2 m tall.
Stipules about 4 mm long, +/- broadly triangular at the base but narrowed into a long acuminate tip at the apex. Spines, about 8-20 mm long, often present on the twigs above each pair of leaves. Leaf blades +/- ovate, about 8.5-10 x 4.9-6 cm, petioles very short, about 0.1-0.2 cm long. Domatia, if present, are small circular pits with hairs at the orifice.
Peduncle + pedicel about 15-25 mm long. Calyx tube (hypanthium) about 2-4 mm long, lobes sometimes unequal, three large and two small, or uniform, each about 0.5-1.5 mm long. Corolla tube about 12-20 mm long, lobes about 7-15 mm long. Anthers +/- sessile, about 3-4 mm long. Tips of the anthers protruding from the throat of the corolla tube at anthesis. Style + stigma about 17 mm long, swollen part about 3-4 mm long, much wider than the style, and 2-lipped at the apex.
Cotyledons stipulate, +/- orbicular, about 8-12 mm diam., margins undulate. First pair of leaves opposite and stipulate, margins undulate. At the tenth leaf stage: leaf blade lanceolate, apex acuminate but blunt at the tip, base obtuse, margin often undulate. Midrib raised on the upper surface. Stipules 2-3.5 mm long, interpetiolar, linear or subulate. Stem spiny, spines about 4-10 mm long, produced on lateral shoots slightly above each pair of leaves. Seed germination time 56 to 432 days.
