Secondary flowers very small, without petals, clustered in the leaf - axils, producing dark-brown pods, often found growing with the last in sandy soil with same range. First flowers appearing in June and July.

The frost flowers are not seen upon this species.

The flowers of both kinds are produced together in clusters at the summit of the stem, the petal-bearing ones small, at length becoming prominent by standing out on long, slender pedicels. 6 to 12 inches high.
