Can this be planted outside in full shade in Arizona!

Asked by: Lynn
The Amate can be planted outside if the temperature in your climate zone does not fall below 45 degrees fahreneit. Otherwise it can be container grown outside but will need to be brought inside during cold snaps to protect from frost, freezing, or overly chilling conditions.

Is this plant good for forming a hedge ?

Asked by: steve
Hello! The Schefflera Amate is not well suited as a typical hedge plant. They become tree like in maturity and can grow to heights of 8’ up to 20’ plus. As they grow and mature they will tend to shed their lower leaves and have more of a tree standard type form and hence do not maintain a hedge like form from the base up. If they were planted on 2’ to 3’ centers in a row the initial effect would be hedge like but as growth occurs the effect would have more of a semi open wind break appearance. They will perform well outside in a tropical or subtropical environment where winter temperatures do not dip below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. On another note there is a relative of the Amate known as Schefflera Arboricola which is a dwarf form. The variety known as Trinette is highly variegated and can be maintained as a hedge with proper and timely pruning to maintain the desired form. The Trinette has a much slower growth rate and more compact foliage than Amate and will grow to 4’ to 8’ plus in maturity. Hopefully this is helpful. Thank You for your inquiry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! I was leery of ordering a plant through mail order, but it arrived in perfect condition in the city of Chicago as an apartment gift. The plant is healthy and a large size for the price. It looks healthier than what you see in the store as it is shipped directly from the grower.

I spent a long time trying to decide how to spend a Christmas gift card and I chose this plant and the ficus pandurata from Home Depot/Delray, based on the reviews. I haven't even gotten home yet and my husband just sent me pictures of the boxes delivered UPSIDE DOWN!!!!!!!!!!! He had to take them out and put them back together. I am VERY disappointed!!! This cannot be how these plants are supposed to be delivered. I am very unhappy. Not worth the risk.
