This striking Japanese shrub or small tree is grown as a foliage plant, although the late summer flowers are features in their own right, individually small but carried in whorls on extended spikes up to 60cm (2ft) long. The leaves are huge too, often 90cm (3ft) long and divided into numerous leaflets, each about 13cm (5in) long and, in this variety (also known as 'Albomarginata', edged with creamy white. Plants appreciate shelter as cold winds can injure their large leaves, but otherwise the plants are quite hardy and will also tolerate a little shade. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

Can the 10m x 10m Japanese Angelica Tree really be described as 'Japanese shrub or small tree'? I have clay soil but too small a garden to accommodate it if it is that big. Would it survive in a large tub?
I have just ordered some Aralia elata variegata seeds as the plant, due to being very difficult to propagate, is very expensive! Does anybody know the best way and how to sow them? Also will they come true with the plant being a variegated form??
