Info

A medium to large shrub reaching 6-10' tall with an equal width, however, new stems can easily be eliminated to keep a narrow form. Often used as a corner plant in entries for a tropical feel. Large (to 16") dark green, widely palmate leaves loom out gracefully from the stems. 18" panicles of milky white flowers appear October to November, followed by clusters of small shiny black fruit. Does well in partial to deep shade and prefers moist acidic, high organic soils. Protect from strong winds. Excellent choice for shaded courtyards and containers.
