Metapanax delavayi (Pot Leaf Aralia) syn. Nothopanax delavayi

Zone: 7 - 9
Natural Range: South Western China
Soil:  Moist, humus rich
Light: part shade, sun
Height: 15'

Attributes:  Evergreen,  1" wide by 9" long leaflets in groups of 3-5.  Unusual green flowers and black fruit

Notes: Still uncommon in cultivation.  Leaves look great to temperatures at about ten degrees.  Can get burned at temperatures bellow that.  I had seen this awesome plant growing for some time at the Washington Park Arboretum and since I love any thing in the Araliaceae family I couldn't wait to get my hands on one.  On my trip to China in 2013 I was pleased to see this great plant growing at about 3,000m in Sichuan province.  On another note when I am driving with these in the back of my VW van aka the plant mobile I often get some double takes and snickers since the plants resemble pot plants.
