Schefflera actinophylla

Schefflera actinophylla, a.k.a. Brassaia, is a stunning, tropical shrub or tree with a vigorous habit. This beautiful Schefflera has a natural glossy look and long, oblong leaves. The shiny green, leathery leaves are arranged on their slender stalks like an umbrella, or like fingers on a hand. Schefflera actinophylla is native to tropical areas of Northeast Australia, Java and New Guinea, where it grows to huge sizes in open woodlands and monsoon rainforests. As a houseplant Schefflera is super versatile and it adapts well to various conditions. Schefflera is easy to prune to any size you want. Keep it tall and slender to offer it as a tree-like stunner to cover a corner from floor to ceiling. Or, make it short and compact, to sell it as a table top pot plant. In addition, Schefflera is a great air-purifier. Schefflera actinophylla is commonly known as Umbrella tree or Queensland Umbella Tree. Other internationally used common names for Schefflera actinophylla are: Australian Ivy Palm or Octopus Tree. Evanthia has Schefflera actinophylla starting material available all year round, as seed and young plants from seed. Ask our team for the Schefflera cultivation manual for commercial production.
