Large Schefflera 'Arboricola' Variegated
The variegated Schefflera Arboricola is also referred to as the Umbrella Plant because of the sloped, hanging leaves that drape in a round, outward fashion, like an umbrella. The variegated Arboricola here at Dahing Plants looks a lot different than its non-variegated counterpart. While you can enjoy the dependable, solid emerald hues the other Arboricola has, this beauty has snazzy, vibrantly yellow leaves splashed in with the green, so it looks like faded patches of cream and lime swirled together. They’re about 4 feet in height and the leaves stretch about a foot wide. The scientific name of this plant is the Brassaia actinophylla, and hails from the tropics Australia, New Guinea, and Java. Other common names for this plant are the Queensland Umbrella Tree, Octopus Tree, and Amate. Ready to take this one home?
