Aralia cordata ‘Sun King’ full sun  partial shade

Bold, brilliant and tropical-style, this newly introduced phenomenal cultivar was first spotted by Barry Yinger in a Japanese nursery. Large golden yellow compound leaves grow up to 3 ft. long on energetic reddish brown stems, quickly framing a bushy rounded clump that turns lime-green when there’s too much shade. Topped with 2 ft. tall spikes of honeybee friendly small white flowers, ‘Sun King’ promises statuesque beauty wherever it’s planted, be- witches birds with its purplish black berries and enjoys moist well draining sites.

Blooms July–September

Size: 4' 0"–5' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
