Pot Size: 10 litre
Description: After seeing the stunning red new growth of this species in 2015 we made a point of returning in 2016 at a time that we could find seed. This was in a mountainous area on our way to Soata in north-eastern Colombia at 3250m. Here they formed 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 at times. Although more ornamental with fawn indumentum on the undersides and on the long leaf stems, not forgetting the brilliant red new growth. A few luckily with 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.
