Schefflera brevipedunculata

Hardy Schefflera

Evergreen Shrub

Bold green foliage add drama and a tropical flair to the overall scene while providing all-season structure. Will ultimately grow to be a large shrub or small tree, but can be grown quite happily in a large container for a while. For those in colder climates who'd like to give this plant a whirl, this may allow you to move it to protected spot during cold weather.
