Description:

Young tree: smooth silvery grey bark, upright habit, branches held slightly above horizontal.
Leaves large, matt, cordate (heart-shaped), growing alternately, on short side branches or spurs, in bunches of 2/3. Leaf margins strongly toothed, similarly veined to Lime (but not Lime as the base is even, not asymetrical) with a fairly long "tail" or point.
