Shrub to 1 m tall, but usually shorter. The leaves are heart-shaped, variously incised with crisped margins and roughly hair. The leaves are camphor and rose-cented. Bears a few white flowers (August to April) with purple markings on short axillary peduncles.
P. englerianum closely resembles P. crispum, but the leaves are bigger and the strong lemon scent is absent.
