Var antiasiaticum ; Var elongatum ; Var lythrifolium

Leaves on main stem 10-30 mm, narrowly elliptic-oblong to linear, often revolute, rounded or mucronate, glabrous or subglabrous, not or scarcely glaucous. Inflorescence elongate, narrowly cylindric to pyramidal, many-flowered. Sepals unequal or subequal, imbricate or united at the base, ovate to oblong or rarely lanceolate, rounded to obtuse or apiculate or rarely acute, entire or with sessile glands. Petals 8-16 mm, sometimes red-veined. Capsule 5-14 mm, ovoid to subglobose. A variable subspecies, of which the distribution overlaps that of subsp. hyssopifolium in Turkestan. Two varieties can be recognised:
1. Sepals unequal, usually ± imbricate, entire or with irregular marginal glands; capsule 6-14 mm, ovoid, gradually acuminate var. elongatum
1. Sepals subequal or unequal, not or scarcely imbricate, with glands all round margin or towards apex only; capsule 5-7 mm, subglobose, shortly rostrate var. microcalycinum
