Flowers of this species are produced on long stalks, bearing one or two whorls of flowers. Color and patterning on the flowers is variable, with greater or lesser degrees of spotting on the corolla tube and the lobes. For many years, this species was distributed as S. verticillata.
The tuber of S. douglasii grows at the surface of the soil if left to its own devices. A botanical print illustrates the interesting growth and flowering habit of this tall-growing species. A large flower cluster shows the decorative potential of the species.
