Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Our original collection gathered from the river-side in the Shei-Pa area of the Central Mountains, Taiwan in the autumn of 1993. Fabulously flamboyant with huge palmately lobed leaves to well over a meter wide, with beige woolly indumentum on the new growth and under-sides of the leaves. Forming annual stems to 2m in rich well drained soil, if cut back by hard frosts. Easily grown in sun or light shade, protect the roots from frost. Named by Mulu Nurseries, Evesham, for its size and hardiness at Powys Castle. Introduced erroneously into cultivation as Aralia decaisneana CC1925.
