"Flowers are in rounded clusters of 25-140 at the tops of the stems or on stalks arising from where the upper leaves join the main stem. Each pinkish purple flower is about 1/4" wide, with 5 purplish, reflexed petals surrounding 5 spreading, pinkish purple hoods, each with a tiny, pointed horn arising from it. The fruits are 2-4" long, fat pods covered with many tiny projections and filled with fluffy seeds. Blooms Late Spring-Summer."
