A tropical-looking golden beauty with large compound leaves that measure up to 3' long! Aralia 'Sun King' emerges with bright gold leaves held on reddish brown stems. If given at least a few hours of sun a day, the foliage will remain yellow all summer. In heavier shade, the foliage will be lime green. Quickly forms a large 4' tall clump of foliage. In mid to late summer, interesting 1-2' racemes of tiny white flowers are produced followed by deep purplish black, inedible berries. Deer resistant. Aralia 'Sun King' is an excellent plant to add a sizable bright accent to a shady spot.
