The 2 upper lobes form a hood over the white stamens, with the lower 3 lobes flaring open and slightly rolled back. The fused sepals forming the calyx have short sharply triangular teeth.

Notes for Identification:

It is easily confused with purple false foxglove (agalinis purpurea) as it often shares the same habitat. The flowers of a. Purpurea have a longer tube and its upper lobes flare out, but easiest way to differentiate the two species is the length of the flower stalk, which is only ¼ inch long or less on a. Purpurea. Agalinis spp. Is partially parasitic.  various sources including the usda and lady bird johnson wildflower center, the university of texas at austin
