The wide upper leaves of Paranomus reflexus are positioned in a spiral around the stem. They have long and flat, strap-like petioles. These leaf stalks cohere closely to the stems before bending down at the necks of the concave, leathery blades, allowing the leaves to point outwards or ascend slightly.
These leaves taper to pointed red tips, their entire to slightly ragged leaf margins cream to yellowish in colour. Pale veins can be seen on some upper leaf surfaces in the photo, fanning from the leaf base straight to the margin without visibly reaching that far (Matthews and Carter, 1993; Eliovson, 1983).
