The caudex will grow to five centimetres, the stems to ten centimetres. The flowers are yellow, and it can be reproduced by cuttings as well.

The genera name from the Greek othone, 'a linen cloth or napkin', in allusion to the downy covering of some of the earlier known species. The species name means 'leaves like a club'.
