Aralia elata, or Angelica tree, is a large, deciduous shrub or small tree with irregular form. Its spreading habit can be single or multi-stemmed. The rough grey bark is covered in sharp prickles. Spiny, unbranched stems have an umbrella-like canopy of large, bi-pinnate, dark green leaves that turn pale yellow and red in autumn. Tiny, creamy white flowers bloom in late summer and autumn and are followed by clusters of small, purple to black berries, ripening in September. Angleica tree is easily grown in any type of soil, even rocky and clay, but prefers average, moist and well-drained soil, in full sun or partial shade. It should be sheltered from strong winds. It tolerates drought and urban air pollution and is, generally, disease-free. Aralia elata is perfect for shrub borders and woodland gardens. Not very suitable for small home gardens, since it is fast-growing and can be very invasive.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
