Inciting a hubbub of horticultural intrigue because
of its house plant affiliations, this bold tropicalthemed
broadleaf evergreen is surprisingly hardy.
Low-branching Schefflera delavayi launches wide umbrellas of
lobed Oak-shaped new growth cloaked with an alluring
fawn-colored fuzz and mature, glossy green compound
leaves that can reach a massive 3 ft. across, while long
lacy sprays distinguished by petite white flowers make a
luminous autumn display. An Aralia family member indigenous
to southeastern China and Vietnam's higher
regions, the Umbrella Tree needs dappled shade and rich well-drained evenly
moist soil to sustain
its gallant good looks.
Size: 10' 0"–15' 0" high x 5' 0"–8' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.
Schefflera delavayi (S-0780)
