Leaves, with opposite phyllotaxis, variable in size and shape; in on-branch leaves on trees. 5-12cm long, almost oval-shaped, while those on rocks or crawling in the forests are circular, some not to reach 2cm long; those leaves are with pointed tips, bases circular with shallow heart-shaped, and more than 30 uneven serrations on one-side margins. Branch tips bear 10-18cm-in-diameter inflorescences; ornamental flowers are white, and 3-7 of them encircle bisexual flowers.
