Versatility and Low Maintenance – Add an Umbrella to Your Forecast

If left to grow tall, the Schefflera will lose its lower leaves, leaving a straight trunk and a large “top” – which is why this tropical beauty is often called the Umbrella Tree. Its large shiny leaves grow in clusters, giving the plant a rounded form that smart landscapers often use to hide something, like an air conditioning unit, meters on a wall, or even the view into the backyard. Strong winds may cause damage, so it’s best to plant in a protected location. Outdoors, this plant can grow extremely tall, so be sure to keep trimming to your preferred height.

The Umbrella Tree is also a popular houseplant that helps to purify air. Extremely low maintenance, you only need to water a few times a month. Indoors, the plant prefers filtered sunlight. Be mindful of your pets around the plant, as it could be toxic if ingested.

    Plant arrived timely, packed well and safe. After cutting the base of cardboard (not easy for a 72-year old), I removed all packing carefully, gave it a nice drink, and it’s been loving its new home I believe. I’ll leave it in pot it shipped in for about 11 days. And I’ll endeavor not to overwater it!

    The plant is beautiful. When it arrived it had some droopy leaves on top but after water and a few day recovery, it is
    Simply great. Thank you very much.

  19. Judith Senft (verified owner)

    First time buyer but certainly not the last! Both plants we ordered came perfectly packed and are larger than we expected. They are the healthiest we have seen. We have been looking for a Schefflera for several years and Plant Vines is by far the best we could hope for.

    arrived super healthy

  21. Joe S. (verified owner)

    Product came exactly as described. Customer service went above and beyond to ensure I received it quickly and and safely due to the fact that I’m in Connecticut and it’s winter.

    The umbrella tree was extremely well packaged, arrived with only 2 leaves off and one small branch break. We were surprised and delighted by the size. The plant has adjusted well and seems to be thriving in its new location. We were so pleased, we bought another for my daughter. Thank you.

    I am so happy with this my Schefflera. First, it was expertly packed. Second, it arrived from Florida to New Jersey healthy and in in perfect condition. The plant is so beautiful that it looks fake. Third, this was a wonderful first-time experience and I will definitely be making more purchases from PlantVine.

    Stunningly perfect and beautiful

  28. Greg (verified owner)

    The plant arrived in excellent condition. We’ve had it three weeks and it seems to be doing fine. We aren’t overwatering. We rotate it daily, slightly. A few leaves have dropped. Seems reasonable. All in all a good experience and I would recommend this company.

Why others chose the Schefflera actinophylla ‘Amate’, Umbrella Tree

I wanted to put it in my office to bring some life to it.

The price is right and it looks healthy, of course once I receive it I would give you more details.

I used to have a beautiful schefflera amate & lost it in a house fire & have been searching for one for a while. I'm really excited to receive her!

I've always loved this plant, I had an "Umbrella Plant" when I was in college years ago and it grew quite well. They're often hard to find now...

Less common low-maintenance plant with a big presence

I have purchased from this vendor before and plants have been clean and healthy.

Large scheffleras make a nice addition to the shady side of your house.

Got something to discuss?

Can it be planted in the ground?

2 years 5 months ago

Hi Jenni, Our amate’s can be planted in the ground. We do recommend planting them in a shaded area since ours are shade grown. If you are wanting to plant this in an area that gets full sun, you can but the leaves will burn until they fully adjust to a full sun location.

What kind of window would provide the best light for this plant, east, west, north?

2 months 14 days ago

Hi Aubrie

East windows are often good for plants that need moderate sunlight or morning sunlight only. West-facing windows. West windows get the full afternoon and evening sun, which can be surprisingly strong in the summer.
