What a stunner!! I have just planted this most pleasing of small trees for a client. As the sun shone through it’s umbrella like crown, it seemed to light up the whole garden and contrasted splendidly with the dark green foliage of next doors’ heavy evergreen plantings. Looks tender, but has gone to -12 degrees centigrade this year already, and will grow in sun or part shade. Evergreen to boot, what’s not to love about this fabulous plant.
Schefflera Hoi comes from Vietnam and is available from Crug Farm Plants, based in North Wales, but currently showing off their glorious collection at the London RHS Show in Victoria, today and tomorrow, Tuesday 15th Feb and Wednesday 16th Feb 2011. If you miss them now, they will also be showing at the Chelsea Flower Show in May this year (2011) for the first time. Go visit!
