Ming Aralia Tree

$25.00

Ming aralia is an interesting and exotic houseplant that is technically an evergreen shrub. While it is a bit more temperamental to grow than your average plant, it's well worth the effort for its fluffy, bright green foliage.

Its ferny, feathery leaves droop from graceful narrow branches that grow straight up, forming a many-layered, complex plant. Ming aralia grows slowly but can eventually reach over 6 feet in height with the proper care. This plant is used extensively in bonsai.

Plants and pots sold separately.
