The long-stalked, compound leaves of Notobubon galbanum have their leaflets wedge-shaped in the lower halves, three-lobed or diamond-shaped and angularly toothed in the upper. The pale green to yellow-green upper blade surfaces in picture show bigger veins into the lobes and lateral, ascending ones also visible. The lower leaf surfaces are usually grey-bluish. The leaves become up to 5 cm long.
These leaves appear attractive, but hold risk of blisters on human skin. The blisters may appear only later, delayed for up to two days after contact with the plant (Bean and Johns, 2005; Mustart, et al, 1997; iNaturalist; http://pza.sanbi.org).
