Aralia cordata 'Sun King'


Availability : Available

Description :

Some plants are like horticultural milestones. This is true of Aralia cordata 'Sun King', a plant with a stunning habit, which was introduced into the United States in the 2010s by Barry Yinger, an American nurseryman specialising in South-East Asian plants.

Aralia cordata 'Sun King' is a hardy, yet deciduous genus, native to wooded highlands with generous. It has brilliantly beautiful foliage and is bright yellow when exposed to the warm morning sun or a more chartreuse yellow when placed in the shade.

In the summer, white inflorescences appear, which then produce bunches of non-toxic black berries in the autumn.

Both fair and good. Aralia cordata's young shoots can be eaten in the same way as bamboo. The flowers are nectar-producing.

In the garden we use it as a focus plant, accompanied by Hosta, ferns or Brunnera, in a shady bed or as underplanting near trees.

In town or in the home, it grows well in pots on a shady patio.

Grow in good garden soil, moist and humus-rich.

Maintenance: Prune the dried stems in the winter and mulch with leaf mould.
