This tropical perennial shrub arrives on your doorstep as a branched stump about 10" tall. It grows 6-15 ft. Aralias are hardy outdoors in zone 10 - 11, consistently above 60 deg F; in more northern climates, they should live indoors. Aralias like consistently moist soil, not dry or soggy, and sun to partial shade. Chicken Gizzard aralias are susceptible to spider mites. Most horticulturists advise washing regularly, and, if there is a persistant infestation, taking off all the leaves and washing the stem. The leaves should return beautifully.
