F. amelloides is an evergreen shrublet usually about 0.3–0.6 x 0.5 m, but sometimes up to 1 m tall, with densely branched and frequently dark red stems, and rough, hairy, ovate green leaves. Striking blue and yellow flowers are typical of Asteraceae, about 30 mm in diameter, and borne on naked stalks up to 180 mm long.
