The leaves are simple, alternate, and generally have a distinctive shape with rounded lobes and deep sinuses. The leaves are green on the upper surface and pale or silvery-white on the underside, which gives the tree its common name.

Care Instructions

Different plants have different watering needs. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
