The flowers of Erica urna-viridis are seen here to grow in a cluster of three, pendulous on long pedicels. Halfway up the pedicels tiny warty bracts can be seen. The sepals are small, green and narrow, almost obscured in the photo behind the broad flat bases of the corollas. The pale greenish-white corolla urns have a dull surface shine and a hint of translucence. The urn narrows almost in a linear fashion like a section of a cone until the mouth, where the broad and short corolla lobes curve outwards.
Only the whitish style protrudes visibly from the flower mouth, showing a dark stigma at its tip. Hidden inside the urn, some large dark anthers with interestingly pointed awns cause the dark colouring of the forward section of the corolla tube (iSpot; Baker and Oliver, 1967).
