Family: Araliaceae

The Ming Aralia is an erect woody shrub growing to about 12 feet (more commonly 6 to 8 feet) tall with fine-textured, pinnately-divided leaves, which gives it a beautiful willow-like airy appearance. In tropical climates it may be used as an excellent vertical specimen, hedge, or screen. As a container plant, it is commonly grown indoors for its handsome foliage. It should be planted outdoors in full sun to part shade in well-drained soil. It has moderate drought tolerance. As a container plant be sure to provide fast drainage, as it will not tolerate water-logged soil, and give bright interior light. By careful pruning, the plant makes an excellent indoor bonsai. Origin is unknown, but probably from India to southern Polynesia. It is strictly a tropical and will decline when temperatures drop below 50F. USDA zones 11 - 12.
