This medium-sized tree is 40-70' tall at maturity, forming a trunk up to 3½' across and a crown that is more or less ovoid. The relatively stout trunk can be straight or somewhat crooked, while the larger branches are ascending to widely spreading and rather crooked. On mature trees, trunk bark is gray-brown, rough-textured, and longitudinally furrowed between narrow scaly plates. The bark of larger branches is more gray and less rough-textured, while young twigs are brown to reddish brown, smooth, and hairless. Young twigs have scattered white lenticels (air pores) and depressed leaf scars. Leaves occur oppositely or in whorls of 3; they tend to hang downward from the twigs. The leaf blades are 6-12" long and 4-8" across; they are cordate to cordate-ovate in shape and smooth along their margins. Sometimes a leaf blade may have a pair of shallow obtuse lobes. The upper surface of the leaf blades is yellowish green, light green, or medium green and hairless (or nearly so), while the lower surface is more pale and short-pubescent. The petioles are 4-6" long, light green, and either hairless or mostly hairless.
