The flowers of this Stachys aethiopica plant are white. The dark spots that may occur on the petals are visible on the lower lips of the corollas. Each flower has four arched stamens in pairs of unequal length. Flowers are about 1 cm in diameter. They grow in whorls at the base of leaves near stem tips. The hairy calyx is green with purple tips to the acutely pointed sepals.
S. aethiopica is a quite variable species with square stems and aromatic leaves (Manning, 2007; Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2010; iSpot).
