Schefflera arboricola (Dwarf Umbrella Tree)


Fresh Seeds of Schefflera arboricola (Dwarf Umbrella Tree) with full instructions for germination.

An evergreen shrub, native to Taiwan, growing to under 12 ft in height within temperate Europe (25 ft in within open ground in the tropics) but much smaller when kept in a pot or grown as a houseplant (under 5-6 ft).

Beautifulpalmate leaves, held in little clumps of fan-like foliage, forming a small tree with a charming shapePerfect as a houseplant, they also are great for purifying the air within a house.

Makes an excellent bonsai tree as the roots are very shallow and it is easily dwarfed.

Marginally frost-hardy, where it will survive occasional light frosts (-1°C) without much noticeable change; but approaching -5°C they will most certainly start to 'sulk' and may actually die. Many people will even have them recover fully after this during spring, but obviously offering protection during frosts is advised should they be grown outdoors.

Please note: full germination instructions are printed on each pack.
