Shrubs with Dissected or Maple-Like Leaves and Smooth Stems )
Maple Family (Aceraceae)
Height: 1.5-3.5 m.
Description: This tall shrub is found along streambeds, and along sheltered ravines. Its maple-like leaf has three main lobes, with two smaller lobes that are indistinct. The alternate leaves are 7.5-10 cm across, dark green above and grayish-green below. Occasionally, the notches in the leave become deep enough to create leaflets rather than a maple-style leaf. In fall, the leaves turn a dull red colour.
