Its leaves are alternate and compound, and are divided into three roughly equal leaflets with toothed leaf margins. The underside of the leaves is lighter than the upper surface and covered with downy hairs. The flowers are small and white and occur in short, terminal panicles. The fruit is yellow and nearly spherical. This plant is noted for its capacity to regenerate from cuttings as well as from plentiful seeds dispersed by birds and other animals.
