    Design IdeasAralia is a perfect foundation plant that provides rich green background foliage in partially shaded landscapes. Its large exotic leaves belie its ability to withstand some frost. Tuck into the understory of trees or between buildings. Thrives in large containers. Lush foliage is soothing to the eye and makes a lovely backdrop when featured in morning sun or dappled shade spots near swimming pools and water gardens. Good subject for night lighting.
