Yup, I had no idea they could bloom! Know I want to get one.lol
Sure does look like it to me and mine has never flowered in all the years I've had it..
My schefflera arboricola is currently at my mothers house, it is approx 12 years old. It was from a friend that gave it to us 2 years ago. It flowered during the first winter, but have not seen any this time. Could be because i pruned it though. I hear they need cooler nights during the winter to trigger the flowers.
Cool!! Those flower clusters remind me of the ivy we outside our house when I was a kid.
Wndy, good eye! Schefflera and English ivy both belong to the same family.....Araliaceae.
Speaking of aralia and ivy, does anyone know were to find a fatshedera. and also beautifulo flowers. that is kinda rare
I've seen a Scheff in bloom at the conservatory. My Scheffs' NEVER bloom. :(
You wrote, 'Now I want to get one.' So, the Scheff in the pic isn't yours?
Did you end up adding a Scheff to your lovely collection? '
I can't recall whether or not flowers were fragrant. Toni
I also had a scheff for 5 years and it never bloomed. I guess blooming means it's a happy plant - and us who don't get flowers must not have quite the green thumb we thought we had.
Do the blooms smell like anything?
