Smaller flowers than E. arctica, in dense, 4-sided, inflorescences. Lower lip
usually white, upper lip white or lilac. Fleshy leaves, blunt-toothed, variably glandular-hairy. Stout, erect stems, short, erect/ascending branches. 5-15cm.
"The photographs are probably E. arctica x tetraquetra as the flowers are larger and leaf bracts sharper-toothed than for pure E. tetraquetra". Alan Silverside.
Found on short coastal grassland, dunes.
