Tetrapanax papyriferus, Tetrapanax papyrifer, Fatsia papyrifer, Aralia papyrifera , Rice-Paper Tree

Tetrapanax papyriferus, Tetrapanax papyrifer, Fatsia papyrifer, Aralia papyrifera

Rice-Paper Tree
Family: Araliaceae
Origin: South China, Taiwan
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

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.

Trevesia burckii, Snow Flake Tree, Ghost's Foot

Trevesia burckii

Snow Flake Tree, Ghost's Foot
Family: Araliaceae
Origin: Sumatra to Borneo
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliage

Named for Enrichetta Treves de Bonfili, of Padua, 19th century patron of botanical research.

Leaves of all the species are palmately lobed, but in some the lobes are narrowed to form false petiolules, and the lamina is expanded again towards the base of the leaf. In Trevesia burckii these leaves are the normal adult state, while in another species (Trevesia palmata) the leaf dissection is variable both between and within individual plants. Young T. burckii seedlings have ovate leaves.

The plant reaches in nature a size of up to 15-20" and prefers the shaded environment of a mountain rainforest. It is a hardy indoor plant that can tolerate a very wide range of home environments from full sunshine to dark corners.

Trevesia sp.

Snow Flake Tree
Family: Araliaceae
Origin: Tropical Asia
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliage

Trevesia spp. are small, little branched, forest trees of south-east Asia. They are remarkable for the unusual pseudo-compound leaves that occur in several of the species. Leaves of all the species are palmately lobed, but in some the lobes are narrowed to form false petiolules, and the lamina is expanded again towards the base of the leaf. In one species (Trevesia burckii) these leaves are the normal adult state, while in another species (Trevesia palmata) the leaf dissection is variable both between and within individual plants.

The plant reaches in nature a size of up to 15-20" and prefers the shaded environment of a mountain rainforest. It is a hardy indoor plant that can tolerate a very wide range of home environments from full sunshine to dark corners.

x Fatshedera lizei

Fatshedera, Ivy Tree
Family: Araliaceae
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The Ivy Tree is an usual plant in that it's the result of a cross between two genera, the Hedera (English ivy) and Fatsia japonica. The resulting hybrid has the interesting and lovely leaf shape of the Fatsia, which can be seen growing along the roadsides throughout the tropical world, and the cultural requirements and basic climbing habit of its ivy parent. As a shrub, Fatshedera can grow up to 1.2 m tall, above which the weight of the fairly weak branches makes them tend to bend over. It can however also be tied to a support and grow into a vine up to 3-4 m tall; unlike Hedera, it does not readily climb without assistance.

It is grown both as a garden plant outdoors, and as a houseplant indoors, where its tolerance of shady conditions is valued.
