Scientific nameDiosma oppositifolia is an erect, multi-stemmed, densely leafy, aromatic shrublet up to 1 m high. The leaves are small, needle-like to lance-shaped, stalkless and dotted with glands. The leaves are alternately opposite, which means that they are situated directly opposite each other on the stem, and that each pair is arranged alternately to the next pair so that they form four rows up the stem.
