Schefflera delavayi

One of the most handsome and potentially hardiest of the Schefflera now grown in the UK. A variable species in the wild it would seem, but this form bears glossy, rich green leaves composed usually of five leaflets, often mildly lobed when young. Spectacular large terminal heads of small white flowers in summer. A large shrub or small tree for a sheltered spot.

Schefflera fantsipanensis NJM 10.137

A striking species on account of the two tiered ranks of up to 11 leaflets on the compound leaves. Collected near the Chinese border in N. Vietnam at 2040m alt. on Fan Si Pan Mt., this made a small upright tree to about 5m, though probably smaller here. Best suited to fairly mild areas in the UK, or with overhead protection of trees or a cool house wall.
