Corolla 4.5–5 cm long, white, yellow or red, with an orange or yellow band below tip, glabrous, apiculate in bud, scarcely swollen at base; lobes erect, 13–16 mm long, upper three-quarters narrowly linear-oblanceolate.
Stamen filaments slender, incurved; anthers 4–5 mm long.
Receptacle 1.5–2 mm long, glabrous.
Flowers 2–6 at ends of short lateral shoots, occasionally also in shortly pedunculate axillary umbels; pedicels 5–10(12) mm long; bract limb 1.5–2 mm long, ovate-triangular.
Leaves opposite or alternate on long shoots, crowded and smaller at base of short shoots, then alternate, then opposite at tip; petiole 1–6 mm long; lamina dark green, thinly coriaceous, 8–45 × 3–15 mm, lanceolate to ovate-elliptic or oblanceolate, pointed to rounded at apex, cuneate at base, glabrous to minutely puberulous, with 2–6 pairs of lateral nerves, the lower ones ± strongly ascending.
Shrub generally less than 1 m high, flowering on short shoots; branchlets slightly compressed at first, puberulous, glabrescent and soon greyish-brown corky.
Berry whitish turning red, 8–9 × 7–8 mm, obovoid-globose, verruculose; seed blue-green with pink top.
Style filiform; stigma 0.6–0.8 mm across, capitate.
Glabrous shrub, up to 1 m high, parasitic on species of various trees. Bud apex beaked to uncinate at maturity. Corolla tube not swollen at base, corolla base 1-2 mm wide. Style filiform. Flowers dark red withyellow band below apex.
Shrubs, mostly less than 1 m high, essentially glabrous. Stems greyish brown. Leaves opposite-subopposite, mostly lanceolate to ovate-elliptic, 15-30 x 5-15 mm, relatively chartaceous, often with 3 distinct basal veins, borne mostly on short spur-branches 10-30 mm long, in 2-4 pairs, basal pair often shorter and broader than upper; petioles subsessile to 4 mm long, often indistinct into the cuneate base. Inflorescence: flowers originating terminally from spur-branches in groups of 2-6; pedicels 6-8 mm long. Corolla without conspicuously swollen base, dark red with yellow band below apex, 35-40 mm long, tube split 7-9 mm below erect lobes; mature buds with apex shortly uncinate. Berries obovoid, 8-10 mm long, red.
