One of the most handsome and potentially hardiest of the Schefflera now grown in the UK with very large foliage when beyond the juvenile phase. A variable species in the wild, but this form bears glossy, rich-green leaves, grey under, composed usually of five leaflets, often handsomely lobed when young. Spectacular large terminal heads of small cream flowers in autumn. A large shrub or small tree for a sheltered spot. Potentially to 4m tall and much wider, if grown in ideal, sheltered humid conditions.
