Schefflera taiwaniana 'Yuan Shan'

Hardy Schefflera

Evergreen Shrub

"Assuredly the hardiest and rarest species of its clan! This unique schefflera - one of the most exciting new introductions from Dan Hinkley - comes from the slopes of the highest mountain in Taiwan. Sensational, evergreen pinnate foliage along the stems, provide distinctive texture to a bright shade garden. A superb container plant.

Plant in bright shaded conditions to add an elegant, distinctive texture. Perfect for adding a tropical flair to any landscape. A striking container specimen even for cold winter areas, where it may be featured in courtyard or dappled shade patio in the warm season, then overwintered indoors in a bright location when temperatures drop." —Monrovia Nursery
