Japanese angelica tree is a must have for those who love tropical looking gardens. Its compound leaves grow up to 1.5m when mature and give this plant an extraordinary, very architectural look. Moreover, this variety has golden-yellow margins or varigation. It has much less thorns than its close relative aralia spinosa (devil’s walking stick) and no prickles on the leaves.

Small, white flowers are formed in large upright panicles and appear in late summer and are followed by deep red-purple, almost black fruits. This gorgeous thing deserves to be planted more often, especially in exotic and unusual looking gardens, or just in places where you do not have much space to play with because this aralia will stand in its glory on its own without a need for a companion.

It can grow almost anywhere, though it does better in acidic soil, and is easy to transplant and incredibly hardy to -37°C (USDA zone 3).
