SUN KING GOLDEN JAPANESE ARALIA

Aralia cordata 'Sun King'

Buy Sun King Golden Japanese Aralia online. 'Sun King' is a beautiful herbaceous perennial that has golden yellow leaves that are supported by reddish brown stems. It offers a nice broadleafed texture to shady to partial sun landscapes. At least 4 hours of sun is required to maintain color, but if sun exposure is during the heat of the day, some scorching can occur. During summer, tiny white flowers are produced that are a great attractant for bees, and these flowers are followed by dark purple to black berries that are inedible.
