The new leaves of Cissampelos capensis are greener than the often glaucous or blue-green older ones. The midrib and lateral veins are prominent upon the young leaves. Sparse, tiny hairs are present, appearing granular; these are absent from the mature leaves.
Most leaves deviate from a circular shape by forming slight, rounded tips; the tips may sometimes be more marked, the leaf shape generally somewhat variable (Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2010; Van Wyk, et al, 1997; Van Wyk and Gericke, 2000; http://pza.sanbi.org).
