Plant Bio

Growing mostly outdoors in the South Pacific, this tree-like plant is often used for hedging. The leaves on the plum aralia grow almost from the base of its trunk right to its top, making it a highly impactful plant that would definitely stop a nosy neighbour from prying! ‘Polyscias’, this plant’s formal name, actually means ‘many shade’, which is probably testament to the density of its leaves.
