Leaves are 3 to 5 inches long, to 2 inches wide, hairless with a waxy appearance, generally oval with distinctly wavy edges, a whitish to pink midrib, and little or no leaf stalk, typically clasping the stem. The leaf tip is blunt but usually with a tiny sharp point at the apex. 2 to 5 pairs are widely spaced on the smooth green to pinkish stem.

This is a fairly rare milkweed and is protected in some states.
