Pseudopanax lessonii

Araliaceae

PSEUDOPANAX

From New Zealand, these evergreen foliage plants are slow-growing aralia relatives. In P. crassifolius and P. ferox, juvenile foliage is far more interesting in shape and color than mature leaves. Flowers are inconspicuous. No special pruning needs. All make good container plants.

Pseudopanax lessonii

Moderate growth to 12–20 ft. tall and 6–12 ft. wide. An effective multistemmed tree in open ground. Leathery, dark green leaves are divided into three to five leaflets 2–4 in. long. ‘Linearifolius’ grows to 6–8 ft. tall.
