Schefflera actinophylla 'Nova'

Nova Umbrella Tree



Schefflera actinophylla Nova

$27.50  

NEW! - This is a very rare unusual looking schefflera with large jagged maple-like leaves that are deeply serrated and pointed at the tips. New growth is bronze colored, later turning to dark green as the compound leaves mature. Image of the flower stalk is at top of page. Most botanical gardens list it as a cultivar of Schefflera actinophylla, but some disagree. Images from Denver Botanical Garden do seem to show older leaves on a mature plant not as deeply serrated and indeed more typical of the species. Plant explorer and hybridizer, John Banta of Altha, Florida, introduced it to the U.S. sometime prior to 2002. It was briefly put into tissue culture by Agristarts at the time. However, it was soon taken off the market and is now rarely offered. Banta had been quoted in 2008 as saying that 'Nova' definitely is not S. actinophylla and that he originally observed the plant growing in the Philippines but obtained the seed from a plant growing in Indonesia near Jakarta. He did not know the species, and did not believe it to be a hybrid. The mystery remains. It is ideal as a container plant that can be kept 3 to 4 feet tall or planted outside in a tropical environment as a large distinctive specimen plant. Give it rich soil, moisture, and partial to full sun. It is more cold sensitive than other varieties of umbrella tree, defoliating under 40F. If protected from freezing, it should regrow new leaves as temperatures warm. USDA zones 10 - 12. Araliaceae
