Stan... That's Schefflera taiwaniana at Keith and Melissa's garden. I still have a Schefflera Taiwaniana in a pot. It came from Mark Fillan. Its leaf shape is so different to the Crug and Pan Global plants being quite thick leaved. I am debating whether to plant this out as well

Keith confirmed to me that it is Schefflera impressa. He misnamed it when we were there.

And just to add to the confusion;

What was originally distributed as Schefflera impressa is Schefflera rhododendrifolia.

The 'impressa' name was a bit dubious anyway. They are all the same plant, but the name was invalid. It had been described as Heptapleurum impressum, and separately as Schefflera rhododendrifolia. Once it was agreed it was a Schefflera, it should have been called Schefflera rhododendrifolia universally.

Just for fun, if Schefflera is broken up [as botanically it probably needs to be], there is a good chance it will go back to being Heptapleurum impressum!

Clive at Hardy Exotics distributed many under the Schefflera impressa name before anyone else had shown much interest in the genus.

Here are my mine. I lost one this winter. Not sure why but it ended up being a lifeless stick with a very small root system. Regards, Phil.

it's not really had a cold winter. I know It may not survive a cold one but hey ho. It's why I have a few of the other types and only one of this.

Phil / Carmel looking good some nice flushes you have there.
I am convinced Schefflera do not like water logged roots in winter, I also have lost a few that ended up a dead stick, but all the plants in the drier areas seem to be fine.

I agree about water logged roots I lost a delavayi due to this. It prompted my to plant the other in the ground in the north west corner of the garden that gets very little rain hitting the soil due to the canopy cover. Growing albeit very slowly (as long as it's alive I can wait)
