We were seeing both species in flower in the Green Cape heath, and I think I am getting my eye in for the difference, apart from the obvious one of sericea having the less branching habit. The flowers on sericea looked a tad darker purple than glabrata, and also a little smaller, though this didn't seem to occur invariably, so you would not want to rely on it, and you need to see them together to see the difference anyway. The hairiness of the flower stalk just below the bracts is distinctive for sericea, and even though the NSW Flora says both have hairy leaf margins near the leaf base, those of sericea appear much hairier.
