Credit: Abrar Ali

Plants up to 120 cm tall. Leaves 2.2- 4.5 cm broad, minutely pubescent. Bracts c. 1.5 cm long, c. 4 mm broad narrowly lanceolate, villous to ciliate. Pedicel up to 4.0 cm long, non articulate. Tepals (8-) 11 mm long, greenish-brown to pink, margin pale, gamophyllous, tube campanulate. Capsule c. 14 mm in diameter, globose.

Holotype: Afghanistan, Kabul,Tang-i-Gharn, 1200-1750 m, Hedge &Wendelbo W2780 (BG), Isotype (E).

As pointed out by Wendelbo (l. c.), the Chitral plant (Stainton 2359) differs from Afghan population, in leaves 20 mm broad, pedicel 20 mm long and tepal only 8 mm long. More material is obviously required for objective assessment of variability.
