Polyscias are versatile, small, indoor, branching trees. They grow in an upright and compact manner, making them suitable even in smaller spaces. Polyscias translates from the Greek as "many" and "shade", a reference to their abundant foliage.

Polyscias Ming has fine, elegant leaves that are made up of many leaflets. They may look fragile, but fortunately this is an adaptable plant so long as it is kept in a warm, humid environment. Perfect to add a touch of oriental style and beauty to your home.
