Schefflera arboricola
Common Name: Dwarf Umbrella Tree, Umbrella Tree, Parasol Plant,

Thanks … for identifying the plant. While surfing about this plant that you identified luckily I found the identification of a similar another plant that I have for years in my garden Brassaia actinophylla
Queensland Umbrella Tree Araliaceae. It grows very tall and I have to keep trimming it. It has never bloomed though.

It is an evergreen shrub growing to 3-6 m tall, free-standing, or clinging to the trunks of other trees.
The leaves are palmately compound, with 7-9 leaflets, the leaflets 9-20 cm long and 4-10 cm broad (though often smaller in cultivation).

The flowers are produced in a 20 cm panicle of small umbels, each umbel 7-10 mm diameter with 5-10 flowers.

This is an Araliaceae.
Schefflera venulosa I assume.

http://www.photomazza.com/?Schefflera-venulosa has purple flowers and not yellow

I got flower from one and fruit from another tree.

You are right, I thought the plant is local and not exotic.
The colour of the flowers are not important.
Leaf apex has a pointed apex in venulosa where as it is rounded in arboricola. Venulosa has 5-7 leaflets and arboricola has 7-9.


Request Tree ID 50 – Bangalore – RA:

Indiranagar, Bangalore

About to bloom

Better picture of the flower.
I am not sure if it blossom more.

Looks like a Schefflera species, possibly S. arboricola.
