Description

Special Order Only - An unusual cultivar which is similar to the species Aralia elata but with spectacular, creamy-white margined leaves up to 100 - 125 cm long. This colourful variegated foliage is complimented by plumes of creamy white flowers produced in midsummer.

The unvariegated stock of this grafted plant will produce suckers if disturbed so it is best to apply mulch freely instead of digging or hoeing nearby. Any suckers should be torn gently away from the root rather than pruned. A handsome foliage plant once established!

This plant is available for special order only, if you are interested in this plant please call our office on (01530) 413700. 

Important: Due to the large, delicate leaves we are unable to send this plant out for delivery by mail order and it is available for collection from our nursery only.

This plant is valuable, difficult to propagate, fickle in the wrong position and susceptible to late spring frost. As such it is not covered by our usual years guarantee.

A lovely plant but for experienced gardeners only!
