Kalopanax septemlobus var. maximowiczii
A particularly desirable form of this species with very deeply and attractively lobed foliage. In essence this resembles a very bold maple with outsize leaves, but they are held on very spiny, thick shoots. A fast growing tree but only of small to medium size eventually. Large flattish heads of white flowers are seen in autumn. A member of the Aralia family from the Far East.
