Aralia varieties are ideal for adding softness and texture to indoor spaces.
An Aralia is an evergreen plant native to Africa, Asia, Australia, parts of North and Central America, and South America. The distinct leaves of a Dinner Plate Aralia resemble leathery, round, dinner plates about 1-2 inch in diameter, which is how the plant got its nickname, the Dinner Plate Aralia.
The leaves can range in color from light green to dark green and some varieties have green and cream colored variegated leaves. Aralias are not good houseplants for beginners since they are easy to over- water which results in root rot and leaves falling off. These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children.
