Tetrapanax papyrifer


Categories: ,


If you’re going for a tropical look, this is a must, but give it space. The rice paper plant will grow as wide as it is tall (at least 4 metres) and each palmate leaf is huge, measuring up to 1 metre, and it sometimes produces large panicles of white flowers. Watch out for the dusty indumentum which can be quite irritating to some people.
