It is a medium to large tree, up to 40 m tall and 75 cm in trunk diameter. The bark is greyish brown and irregular. The base of the cylindrical trunk is flanged. Leaves 12 to 20 cm long, alternate and variable in shape, simple or pinnatifid, the leaf margins wavy. Leaf venation is clearly seen above and below the leaf. The ornamental flowers have bright red umbels in a circular formation, hence the name Firewheel Tree. Flowers form mostly between February to March.
