grows in damp woodlands and open forests in the hills near the east
coast (especially in and around the Douglas Apsley National Park. It has opposite and
decussate leaves that are entire, and a few cm long. The flowers are almost radially symmetrical
(with the upper petal slightly larger) blue-purple and in dense, spike-like inflorescences
clustered at the ends of the branches.
used to be considered as part of
V. formosa, but is clearly different in being mostly
unbranched, and having larger leaves and inflorescences clustered at
the ends of the branches.
