Are you searching for an unusual shade loving plant that can bring layers of color to your garden? Aralia Sun King might tickle your fancy. It thrives in similar conditions to hostas and other woodland perennials, but grows to about 3 ft in height and features tropical-looking golden colored leaves.

With at least 2 hours of sun per day, foliage should remain golden with complementary reddish-brown stems. In more shade the leaves will darken to a lighter lime green. It is a fast growing shrub and once established grows to 3ft tall by wide. Golden leaves emerge in mid-spring and once they get started will quickly grown to fill in the desired space. Mid-summer sees tiny white pollinator-friendly flowers emerge and in fall it sports inedible deep-purple berries.

arrived small and weak and then died within 6 days

Arrive small and weak, especially for a one-gallon purchase. Died within 6 days. It was planted next to one from a box store and yet receiving the same care, this one died and the other is thriving. Asked for refund or replacement but customer service MIA.
