Its leaves are large - up to 30cm long - broadly elliptic, matt green above and hairy underneath. The flowers are a deep rose-pink and appear in early spring before the leaves. They are initially goblet shaped, later opening wide, up to 30cm across. The fruits are clyindrical, about 20cm long, containing red seeds.
