Description: From our first visit to a mountainous area on our way to Soata in north-eastern Colombia at 3375m, in 2015. Where this species could be found as small scattered trees 4-5m tall in boundary fences for grazing areas. With variably palmately compound leaves to around 75 cm across composed of up to 10 leaflets, similar to Schefflera. Although more ornamental with fawn indumentum on the undersides and on the long leaf stems, not forgetting the red new growth when grown under the right growing conditions.This collection luckily had a terminal infructescence of black berries. Protect while young. Not tested for hardiness yet, best grown in a well drained compost with moisture retention, in good light.
