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'–15' high x 5'–8' wide; hardy to zone 7.
Schefflera delavayi (S-0780)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
