Schefflera arboricola

Schefflera arboricola, a.k.a. Heptapleurum, is a stunning shrub with a compact and bushy habit. This decorative, subtropical beauty has glossy, oblong leaves. The shiny green, leathery leaves are arranged on their slender stalks like an umbrella, or like fingers on a hand. This dwarf-type Schefflera arboricola looks like a small version of the more tree-like S. actinophylla, with smaller thicker leaves. Schefflera arboricola is native to subtropical forest areas of Taiwan, where it’s creeping and vining. It can grow epiphytically on trees, without extracting nutrients from them. As a houseplant Schefflera is super versatile and it adapts well to various conditions. Schefflera is easy to prune to keep it tall and slender or short and compact. In addition, Schefflera is a great air-purifier. Schefflera arboricola is commonly known as Dwarf Umbrella tree or Hawaiian Elf. Other internationally used common names for Schefflera arboricola are: Dwarf Schefflera, Parasol plant. Evanthia has Schefflera arboricola starting material available all year round, as seed and young plants from seed. Ask our team for the Schefflera cultivation manual for commercial production.
