Post Show us your Sheffy's
I know now that some beauts are now available to most of us of the edge. The Crug beautys that we cannot get,and the subtropical and fully tropical of California or Florida. I never get tired of them all. So show us your blooming arboracola in Portugal or your Octopus in Los Angeles or Miami.

The Schefflera outside in the garden are not doing much as yet which I assume is the same for most of the UK? Its still too cold and -3 C/ 27 F forecast for me tonight does not help. :shock:

Here's Schefflera elegantissima growing outdoors. I'm still deciding the right spot. It was one of those dish garden plants a couple of years ago-now it's about 3'

Those are really nice. I'm not jealous at all. No, really.

I have seen your Schefflera elegantissima this weekend Stan it was used in the orchid display we went to and purely a house plant here.

I would be interested on how the other Scheff macs have done this winter and what are they doing now?

My Schefflera elegantissima started off like your Stan with the fine divided leaves, and now its about 8 feet tall and the leaves have become adult which are enormous like Kev's macrophyla and its in full sun! :D

Well here it is in 2017. I noticed its first branching this year. There were four in a pot around 2007. Two are now tall...two are still in the juvenile leafs. First flowering was maybe 3 summers ago? To think,it was four little plants in a 6" pot from the houseplant section. I doubt you will find another in the bay area as its hard to fit into a landscape with its tuft of leaves,thin trunk and need for regular watering. For die hard Schefflera like plant, lovers.
