Blaze odour may resemble that of mango (Mangifera indica) or carrots (Daucus carota).
Oil dots quite numerous, closely spaced. Leaf blades about 13-28 x 5.6-15 cm. Lateral veins forming fairly definite loops inside the blade margin. Leafy twigs tending to be square in cross section like a cylinder of plasticine which has been squeezed at a number of points between finger and thumb, each squeeze being at right angles to the previous one.
Cotyledons about 12-15 mm long, margins toothed. At first leaf stage leaves trifoliolate, 1 or 2 pairs produced before simple leaves. At the tenth leaf stage: petiole channelled or flat on the upper surface, semicircular below.
