Schefflera actinophylla (Umbrella Tree) Details

Commonly known as the Umbrella Tree, this is an evergreen tree that originates from rain forests. It features large and lush, bright green leaves that radiate outwards in an umbrella-like fashion. Red flowers may be produced in summer but are rarely seen in home garden situations. It typically grows to 8 m tall and 4 m wide, and can be trimmed as necessary. When grown indoors as a potted plant it is often contained to anywhere from 1.5 m tall to 3 m tall. The Umbrella Tree is a low maintenance plant that grows best when positioned in full sun on a well-drained site that is free from frost. It is typically grown outdoors in warmer climates as a specimen or added to a mixed planting. It is also well suited to tropical gardens, planting around outdoor living areas, or maintaining in a container. Make sure it has plenty of space if grown indoors.
