Glandular and non-glandular unicellular trichomes occur on the leaves. Leaves are isobilateral, amphistomatic with anomocytic stomata. The anatomy of the stem is typically that of a herbaceous dicotyledon with a thick periderm. The periderm absorbs light at wavelengths below 411 nm but transmits light of longer wavelengths. Starch grains and tannins are conspicuous in stems of both species. Anatomically S. peniculinum Moffett conforms with the other two species in the section Multifidi Moffett.

Bot. 1983, 2: 231-235 Kliertrigome en nie-kliertrigome kom op die blare voor. Die blare is isobilateraal, amfistomaties met anomositiese stomata. Die anatomiese bou van die stingel is tipies die van 'n kruidagtige dikotiel met 'n dik periderm . Die periderm absorbeer lig van golflengtes korter as 411 nm , maar laat lig van Ianger golflengtes deur. Stingels van beide spesies is ryk aan styselkorrels en tanniene. Anatomies stem S. peniculinum Moffett ooreen met die ander twee spesies in die seksie Multifidi Moffett. S. inerme Rehm verskil egter van die ander twee spesies in die seksie Denticulati Moffett in die isobilaterale blare en die voorkoms van kort gebuigde trigome. S.-Afr. Tydskr.
