Consolida regalis reaches on average 30–80 centimetres (12–31 in) of height. The stem is erect, hairy and very branched at the top. The roots grow into the soil up to a depth of 50 centimetres (20 in), so the plant can survive long periods of drought. The leaves are alternately arranged.
The inflorescence is a cluster with five to eight hermaphrodite flowers. They are dark blue or purple, with five sepals. The upper sepal is prolonged in a spur of 15–18 millimetres (0.59–0.71 in) long, pointing toward the back. There are eight to ten stamens. The flowering period extends from May through August.
