An excellent introduction if you are into the Araliaceae family and fortunately, there are lots of Araliaddicts out there! This came from the high point in its range with occasional cold exposure and has proven hardy outside here in full sun and wind exposure. Not ideal but that's what we got! Our plant in the shade garden declined so some sun at least is good. Plants have variable evergreen foliage with juvenile plants sometimes expressing more frequently deeply 2-clefted 3-lobed leaves with older plants usually completely entire but not always. And this may be influenced by nutrition and exposure as well. Pale green flowers with white anthers in an umbel followed by black fruit. Sorry, can't select by leaf shape.
