Black Aralia

The aralia family (Araliaceae) is composed of 84 genera of herbs and woody plants ranging from vines to trees (2), including the genus, Polyscias. Within Polyscias, there are approximately 80 species of trees and shrubs indigenous to Polynesia and tropical Asia, most of which are commonly called aralias. Many aralias are useful interior plants and landscape plants in tropical areas of the world. Leaves of Polyscias are arranged alternately on the stem and are usually compound. Several cultivars have attractive variegated foliage.
