Free unusual landscape shrub, and we will help you dig it.
Aralia Elata, commonly name Japanese Angelica Tree (green leaves, not variegated). It’s multi-trunked, with 6 or 7 full-size stalks up to 12 feet, and several new-growth stalks coming up. You can let young ones come up and cut down older ones to refresh the plant or just cut the new shoots. It’s an easy plant to maintain. The stalks grow up to 2 ½ inches in diameter at the most, making this a nice architectural screen. Bees love it in flower, and each year cedar waxwings flock in as a group to eat the small black berries all in about two days in late fall. This is a full grown plant, and you might not think of this as transplantable, but was moved two years ago due to an impending home remodel. It survived like a champ. Likes full or part sun and requires very little water.
