Aralia continentalis

Current Stock:

Very close to Aralia cordata, this large herbaceous spikenard from East Asia differs in the grayish cast of its leaves, which are also somewhat narrower.  As with most aralias, its foliage makes a big, bold, beautiful statement in the shade garden.  It also bears lots of eye-catching umbels of small white flowers in summer, maturing to black-purple berries (non-edible).  3.5-inch pots.  Zone 4.  Photo: Anneli Salo

Part to full shade; humus-rich soil; 4'x3'; summer
