Winter Hardy Aralia are fully winter hardy, woody deciduous shrubs with upright growing stems. Makes several long terminal racemes with small yellowish-green flowers followed by decorative, small black berries in late summer and autumn above beautiful, feathered leaves. Native in humus rich soils in open spots in woods in Japan. For any humus-rich, slightly moist soil in a partially shaded to sunny spot.
Sow the small seeds flat in any humus-rich, well drained soil. Only slightly cover seeds with soil and keep pots in a protected, sunny spot outside during winter. Seedlings are best grown under frostfree conditions for some two to three years. In winter keep pots slightly drier at a minimum of some 5°C. Transplant in summer or late spring as soon as seedlings are strong enough.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
