Can you please ID this species of foliage ornamental shrub which could be a species of Polyscias. It often locally called croton may be wrongly. Photo was taken in Sri Lanka in Oct 2013


Polyscias pinnata ‘Marginata’

Dinner-plate aralia


As the name suggests the genus Polyscias comes under Family Araliaceae

Confusion between Polyscias pinnata, Polyscias balfouriana and Polyscias scutellaria
There seems to be a lot of confusion between these three (sometimes used alternatively for the same plant) as is evident from the following links:

I think Polyscias pinnata and Polyscias balfouriana are same as per
https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/fp489
https://mrec.ifas.ufl.edu/foliage/folnotes/aralia.htm
Keys are available at Notes on Polyscias (Araliaceae) from Micronesia – Micronesica
Any feedback is welcome.

Agreed this paper, 1989, considers both as synonyms of P. scutellaria (N. L. Burman) Fosberg (eFlora of China considers P. balfouriana as its synonym) but POWO, Catalogue of Life and WFO treat them as independent species. It would be interesting to know their differences.


But all three species in efi site look similar. Pl. have a look.


Let us wait for some credible recent publication


Correct link is Notes on Polyscias (Araliaceae) from Micronesia – Micronesica


I think link may contain the latest information although no date is specified:

Aralia for ID : Oman : 180912 : AK-2: A cultivated, ornamental, potted, garden plant seen in a public garden here on 24/6/2011. Variegated round leaves. Some species of Aralia. Id please


… probably garden cultivar of Polyscias balfouriana
Reference: Gardentia


Thanks for sharing this garden plant which I am sure is observed by many.

Never thought it belongs to family Araliaceae. Thanks … for the botanical name of probable common name being Ming Aralia

yes… your dx is correct
NO … its family Araliaceae ok but
not a ming aralia… ming aralia has lacy very delicate leaves… and their arrangement is very different from this aralia… both are very popular houseplants… ming aralia more cold sensitive then this one…


Thanks for all the info and possible id. After… clue, I tried searching.

Could it be ‘Dinner Plate Aralia’Polyscias scutelleria?

Kindly confirm.


it is Polyscias scutelleria, as you mentioned in your mail.


Thanks for validation of id.

Is it Polyscias balfouriana?


It is also known as Arelia balfouriana.


Thanks, … To me it appears more closer to images at Polyscias scutellaria rather than at Polyscias balfouriana as per comparative images at Polyscias
