Description

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.

Can it be planted in the ground?

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.
