[ Umbrella Tree (Schefflera actinophylla) | Posted on July 29, 2012 ]

This tree is very invasive in our area; even though I don't have a tree myself there are many in my neighborhood, and I find seedlings growing everywhere, including in the cups of my Bromeliads! So -whereas they are attractive, they need to be kept firmly in check.
