(Mature Size: 36"T x 36"W Likely Larger)
If you're looking for something different in the shade garden, this is it!
Aralia 'Sun King' emerges in mid-spring with bright gold leaves held on cinnamon-red stems.
Stays a nice yellow if given a few hours of sun per day. Will be chartreuse in shade.
This plant quickly forms a large clump of foliage which amazingly resists deer browsing.
Site this beauty as a focal point and show it off!
This companion compliments blue and green hostas very well. Try surrounding this gem with silvery Pulmonaria and orange Heuchera as well.
It reportedly grows just three feet tall and wide, though many plantsmen believe it will grow larger over time.
In mid to late summer, interesting racemes of tiny white flowers are produced followed by deep purplish black, inedible berries.
Like most Aralias, the flowers attract honeybees.
