Polyscias cumingiana

$10.95  

This is a tall upright shrub with leathery fern-like leaves up to 15 inches long. In full sun the foliage turns a rich golden color. As with all Polyscias in tropical climates, it can be used as an accent, hedge plant, wind screen, or for privacy screening. It should be planted in full sun to part shade in well-drained soil.

Schefflera schizophylla

(Syn.: Schefflera incisa, Schefflera actinophylla 'Nova'), Nova Umbrella Tree



Schefflera schizophylla

$35.00  

We previously offered this plant as Schefflera actinophylla 'Nova'. 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 the top of the page. Most botanical gardens list it as a cultivar of Schefflera actinophylla. However, Marc Frank of the University of Florida Herbarium has identified it as Schefflera schizophylla. 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 at the time, and did not believe it to be a hybrid. It is native to Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand and is cultivated elsewhere in Southeast Asia. It's 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
