Any chance schefflera will hybridize with fatzia? Both in bloom today 5 feet from each other.

It's not an impossible idea.

The Araliaceae have an odd set of genetics. n=12 is basic across them, but with complex polyploidy in many.

Both Fatsia and Asian Schefflera have been noted as 2n=48 [though some Fatsia are 2n=24].

Since Fatsia has crossed with Hedera anything looks possible, if unlikely, in this area.

Tim.... wasps were the predominant pollinators on my Schefflera that flowered. Unfortunately Fatsia japonica is now only starting to flower in the garden and is way behind Schefflera that have flowered and set fruit. Your S delavayi looks absolutely superb in form and colour considering the cold Winter you had. Certainly worth protecting. :D

Chad, only time will tell if the cross took......

Andy, hopefully I’ll get seed. Winter is approaching fast.
