Variegated Five-Leaf Aralia

Eleutherococcus

Eleutherococcus sieboldianus ‘Variegatus’ partial shade

Wherever this carefree east Asian native is staged, it quickly matures into an engaging, medium-sized specimen full of panache. Artfully showcasing irregular creamy white margins, Buckeye-style, bright green five-fingered leaves garb numerous upright and arching cane-like stems plus spawn tiny spines at each base..

This hardy deciduous mound struts great fortitude, which readily adapts to a wide range of soil, even dry conditions, plus flourishes in sun or dappled light. The only dilemma you’ll encounter is narrowing down the myriad choices of where to plant Variegated Five-Leaf Aralia: the shade garden, the backside of a perennial or shrubby border or perhaps along the edge of your property as a screen or hedgerow.

Size: 6' 0"–8' 0" high x 6' 0"–8' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
