Glossy, palm-like leaves reaching out for the sun, the Japanese Aralia is potted drama. With leaves reaching up to 30cm in diameter, the high sheen finish emphasises deep lobed, star-burst veining, spanning the plant's large leafy canopy. A subtle cluster of white flowering erupts in the autumn, contrasting against the lush tropical greens. This robust, low maintenance plant requires little effort to look good, subtly stealing the show.
Go big or go home! If you like big bold leaves, removing the berries that appear after flowering will encourage the leaves to grow larger.
Sensitive to salt! Try to water with distilled water. The chemicals and salts in tap water can cause leaf edging to turn brown.
Too much sun, hun! Yellowing leaves is a sign that your plant has had too much sun. Relocate to rejuvenate.
