The small to medium-sized flowers of Erica labialis grow in various shades of pink in stem-tip clusters. The calyces are tiny.
The hairless corollas are tubular to funnel-shaped, ending in two shallow, angled to rounded lobes, often with ciliate margins. The specific name, labia, is a Latin word meaning lips, referring to these lobes.
There are four stamens, their blackish maroon anthers oblong and exserted. The long, white styles are exserted about double as far as the anthers, the stigmas slightly thickened.
Blooming happens throughout the year (Manning, 2007; Bond and Goldblatt, 1984; iNaturalist; JSTOR; https://www.fernkloof.org.za).
