(Golden Aralia) Aralia 'Sun King' is a beautiful foliage plant for part shade to full shade locations. The chartreuse multi petaled branches fan out, lending to an airy looking perennial. 'Sun King' produces white flowers in late summer, followed by purple berries in the fall/winter. Aralia makes a nice choice for combination planters and in the landscape. 'Sun King' prefers to be grown in good deep loam that is moist but has good drainage. It is an excellent choice for height and drama in the shade garden.
