The low shrub typically grows to a height of 0.5 to 1.0 metre (2 to 3 ft). It blooms between July and October producing pink-red flowers.

It was initially formally described as Baeckea stowardii by the botanist Spencer Le Marchant Moore in 1920 as part of the work A contribution to the Flora of Australia. published in the Journal of the Linnean Society, Botany. It was transferred to the Enekbatus genera in 2010 by Barbara Rye and Malcolm Trudgen in the work Enekbatus, a new Western Australian genus of Myrtaceae with a multi-locular indehiscent fruit. published in the journal Nuytsia.[2]
