Schefflera delavayi

One of the most handsome and potentially hardiest of the Schefflera now grown in the UK.

Spectacular large terminal heads of small white flowers in summer. A large shrub or small tree for a sheltered spot.

Schefflera sp. nova NJM 13.118

This recent find from high altitude in Nagaland is apparently an undescribed new species. Sharing the forest at over 2700m asl with Rhododendron macabeanum, this made a small tree to about 10m in the largest specimens, but most often much smaller. Compound palmate leaves with lightly toothed leaflets green above and grey hairy beneath.

Schefflera taiwaniana

A most desirable member of the Araliaceae from higher altitudes in Taiwan, forming a deliciously tropical looking large shrub with beautiful, digitate, evergreen foliage made up of slim dark, glossy green leaflets. The new, semi-expanded growth is covered in pale hairs. For a sheltered, not too hot position in sun or semi-shade. One of the best species for UK cultivation.

Smallanthus sonchifolia 'Red China'

Yakon. A big leafy Andean member of the Aster family, producing striking pairs of opposite, dark tinted foliage up the 2m stems. Large leaves are shaped roughly like an arrowhead, with striking veining and a winged petiole, adding an exotic element to any planting. Purple tubers are sweet and edible and extremely low on the glycaemic index and are easy to juice. Lift like a Dahlia for winter.
