Schefflera Amate (Umbrella Tree)


Native to tropical regions such as Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, the Umbrella Tree is a full and bushy plant known for its large, glossy leaves. It prefers a bright, non-direct light and can tolerate lower light levels as well. If placing it in a lower light environment, reduce water accordingly. With a developed root system, the Schleffera can be watered less frequently than most other plants and is prone to root rot so err on the side of dryness when deciding whether to water or not.


Plant height approximately 2' (6" pot size)

Plant height approximately 3' (10" pot size)

Plant height approximately 5' (14" pot size) 

Care Guidelines:

Sunlight - Thrives in bright, non-direct light; can tolerate medium light
Watering - Allow top few inches of soil to dry between waterings


  • While the diameter of the plant’s pot (10" or 14") is consistent, the overall height and width will vary from plant to plant and depends on nature itself.
  • All plants are sold in a plastic grower’s pot. They do not include a decorative pot.
