A Schefflera of smaller stature with a need to please. This flowers when quite young with spherical clusters of creamy-white flowers followed by even showier balls of black fruit. Self-fertile, this handles the reproductive function nicely on its own which is all the rage in this era of the pandemic. A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering. Nice gallon size.
A reintroduction of this rare species that has been introduced just once by Steve Hootman in 1995. This is from the same population but does provide a bit more genetic diversity as the ones cultivated from the 1995 introduction come from just one or two plants. Hardy in Seattle.
A collection by Josh McCullough from northern Vietnam of this smaller and graceful species. Unlike many of the other species, this flowers very young with open panicles of small white flowers clustered in balls which turn into attractive black fruit. This has proven hardy in zone 8 and is good for the smaller garden.
A precocious species which can flower the first year from seed with spherical clusters of dusky cream florets. The flowers, while quietly attractive, are eclipsed by the showy fruit congregated in impressive large black balls which are very attractive. This was found growing epiphytically on a large fallen log.
Alas, most Schefflera you have known and loved have been moved to other genera with just a scant handful remaining in Schefflera. Perfectly sensible for a very large genus spread over several continents. These are seed-grown from our plants from the recent first North American introduction.
This is a collection from Lao Cai, Above Silver Waterfall, Vietnam 2150 meters just in case you are in the neighborhood and want to check out the original plant. This is a reasonably narrow shrub which flowers very young with small pale pom-poms of clustered tiny flowers which are followed by black fruit.
This smaller Schefflera is a very ornamental species from our collection northern Vietnam from a mountain previously unexplored by westerners. Loose panicles of presumed creamy flowers and black fruit. Similar but different to Schefflera sp. NV 023. Pretty cool!
A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering. A bold plant of 12' forming part of the species-dense broad-leaf forest margins on the incredibly steep slopes of a mountain previously not visited by westerners to our knowledge. It was a long day's climb which ended in the dark with rain and wind on a bare ridge hoping the tent didn't blow away with us in it. Fortunately, after 20+ miles and 5800' feet elevation gain, sleep came easy! Broad leaves with up to 14 leaflets held on petioles touched in red. Cream flowers and black fruit on dendritic panicles. Proceeds from this goes to the FRBC.
