Tetrapanax is very dramatic in the landscape; the leaves can grow to a 3 feet across. The deeply-lobed leaves cluster at the top of the trunk on long stems. The underside of the leaves is covered with white, fine hairs which can be an irritant to eyes or skin. Winter-blooming creamy white flowers form large clusters. For best results, plants should be given a moist, shady and sheltered spot, to mimic the conditions of their forest home.

The dried pith of the stem is the source of rice paper in China.
