These are either shrubs or bushes that can reach 4m or more than 4 m in height and they have smooth barks. The leaves bear long reddish petioles that can measure 2 to 3 mm in length. The lamina has thick margins and it can measure 4 to 10 cm by 2 to 4.7 cm. They are oval to oblong-oval, rather rounded at the tips and somewhat sub-cuneiform at the base. The 5 to 8 secondary veins are not so visible on the lower leaf surface.
Flowers are solitary
or are grouped in cymoses. The peduncles are 1 to 5 mm long, while the
pedicles can reach up to 2.5 mm in length. These also consist of a pair
of bracteoles below the calyx. The floral tube is obconic-campanulate,
2.5 mm by 2.5 mm. The petals are white, deltoid and 2.5 mm long. The fruits
are globular and 9 mm in diameter. They are usually yellowish at maturity.
