The alternate leaf plates are toothed, pinnately dissected, simple, entire or lobed. Flowers across reach 70–80 millimeters, most often they are very fragrant, their color is varied: yellow, purple, red, white, pink or blue. Flowers are placed in the leaf axils bundle, single or form a long racemose inflorescence. The disclosure of each of the flowers is observed at sunset, and they fade after 24 hours. On a cloudy or rainy day, the flowers do not close at all. If the weather is sunny, they close at around noon, but by this time flies, bees and other insects will have time to pollinate them. Oslinnik blooms in June – September. The fruit is a box, and it contains up to 3 thousand seeds.
