Schefflera actinophylla -araliaceae- Origin Australia. Also called the Umbrella tree, Queensland Umbrella tree and Octopus tree. This slim upright tree is made up of multiple trunks, each topped with a small crown of large showy leaves. The compound leaves form an umbrella shape rosette which gives the tree one of its common names. Ten to fifteen stalks of bright red flowers appear in summer and are followed by round dark berrries. Can be grown indoors in a pot as a nice indoor tropical plant. Will grow in zones 8 through 11 and can survive mild frosts. Cover in evening if frost danger is consistent.
