Schefflera arboricola are fantastic houseplants with beautiful foliage. They are not difficult to look after and will tolerate some neglect as well as help clean the surrounding air, making them one of the most popular of houseplants.

Also known as the Dwarf Umbrella Tree, Schefflera arboricola has green, glossy splayed leaves reminiscent of an umbrella. Schefflera arboricola is a compact variety with dark green leaves that are smaller than many of the other Schefflera varieties. They are fast growing, but are readily trimmed into shape, making them adaptable as small plants displayed on a table through to tall, specimen floor plants.
