Aralia apioides

Aralia apioides ex EDHCH 9720
Aralia apiioides
Probably my favourite herbaceous Aralia - this is a relatively small (to about 3ft tall) Asian species with striking bloomy black stems and new growth, attractively veined leaflets and elegant wide branching inflorescences.
Aralia apiioides
Extremely choice and still rare. Needs a cool moist spot but otherwise easy to grow.
