Before the Garuleum bipinnatum bud opens, the slightly too long involucral bracts pout in a central protrusion on its top. The narrowly oblong bracts are pink-purple in their upper parts.
Once the flowerhead is open, these purple tips will be concealed, retaining their colour below the much longer, spreading ray florets on top of them. There seems to be only one row of bracts here; Garuleum usually has two or three.
Most plant parts in picture are hairy and soft-textured. The peduncles below the heads are variable in length, hairy but leafless, grown at the stem-tips (Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2015; iNaturalist; http://pza.sanbi.org; http://www.worldfloraonline.org).
