If you are getting tired of Dracaenas and Palms think about using Aralias for those dark, hot corners of your home or office. The distinct leaves of an Aralia can be lacy, rounded, or spinach shaped and the color of the leaves can be green, white, gold, and cream. The trunks of specimen Aralias, thick, woody, and curving are often unique and exotic looking. When small, an Aralia can be used as a table plant and later as an impressive floor plant. This is not a good plant for the novice plant enthusiast; it’s not very forgiving and quickly drops leaves when not cared for properly.
