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.

    I was very nervous about ordering plants on-line. It turned out I needn’t have been. All three plants I ordered are beautiful and healthy. The EXTREMELY well-packaged plants arrived safely protected from our cold weather. I had a question about our shipment and received a quick and kind reply. I HIGHLY recommend this company.

    So very pleased with my Amate!! Stunning plant, very well packed. Right out of the box a very happy healthy plant!

  5. Berta Walker (verified owner)

    My plant arrived and was absolutely beautiful! After weeks of going back and forth with myself should I or shouldn’t I. Thinking that was a lot of money to pay for something and not knowing what it would look like when it got to me. As I said before I was going back and forth should I or shouldn’t I, decided I am going to do it. When the plant arrived it was so beautiful I could not have done better then if I was there and picked it out myself. It is absolutely beautiful I love it it’s gorgeous, I was so thrilled when I took it out of the box and see how beautiful it was. I will definitely purchase from them again with out hesitation thank you plantvine

  10. 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.

  11. Rebecca (verified owner)

    Stunningly perfect and beautiful

  12. Al-Nisa W. (verified owner)

    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.

    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.

    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.

  18. Halley (verified owner)

    arrived super healthy

  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.

  20. Wayne Mcdonald (verified owner)

    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.

    Terrific set up! They’ve anticipated and addressed every concern you might have about online plant purchase and shipping.
    Very pleased with my schefflera. Definitely will use them again.
    Mother and plant doing fine, BTW!

Why others chose this plant.

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.

Can it be planted in the ground?

1 year 8 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.
