Japanese aralia is a slow-growing hardy evergreen shrub that can thrive in most parts of the U.S. It is the perfect plant for someone who wants to grow a tree in a pot, because it is slow growing but still has a giant impact on the surrounding landscape. The leaves of this tree are feather-shaped and come out of the plant in arches, creating a beautiful display that is unlike any other plant.
Aralia is a genus of flowering plants in the family Araliaceae, commonly known as the giant horsetails. They are native to Asia, Australasia, and North America.
