Variegated schefflera shohin

Post  Tom Simonyi on Sun Sep 11, 2011 11:42 pm

This is variegated cultivar of arboricola 'Hawaiian Elf.' Height is nine inches from the soil line....I have found that it responds well to defoliation which I do about twice a year.

Good day, Pascal...

Where I live (northern West Virginia in USA) I grow schefflera (along with other tropicals) outdoors from about May 15 until the end of September (approximate). As soon as nighttime temperatures remain steady below 50 degrees for an extended period, I move them indoors under fluorescent lights....there the temperature averages around 65 degrees during the winter months. Hope this helps.

Regards,
Tom

According to the US Forest Service, Schefflera arboricola is hardy to USDA Zone 9b, 25 F, about -4 C. You can probably leave it out until the first frost warning.

Here in 8b on the north Gulf Coast, I don't worry about Ficus and Shefflera until I know we're going to get a serious frost/freeze. On warmish days they go back outside, even if it's the patio table in the sun. I don't have a greenhouse and this works fine with these two. Not all tropicals are created equal, can't do this with Malpighia and buttonwoods.
