The leaves of Dombeya rotundifolia must have a semblance of circularity, given its name. They are described as “broadly ovate to almost circular” by Coates Palgrave (2002). The leaves vary in size from 3 cm to 15 cm in diameter. The surface is leathery, rough, hairy, dark green above, paler below and five to seven prominent veins run from the base. The margins are slightly lobed and irregularly toothed to entire. The petiole may be as long as 8 cm (Schmidt, et al, 2002).
