This plant had small leaves no more than 1.5 inches (4 cm) long. They appeared serrated along the edges but didn't feel harsh. The underside was lightly fuzzy.

The blue/purple flowers were arranged in clusters at the ends of branches. Each cluster head was about the same size as a leaf. From a distance, the flower clusters appeared lightly sprinkled among the leaves.
