|Lore||The species name comes from the Latin laetus 'bright'. Pseudopanax arboreus is dioecious (like a holly), meaning individual plants are either male or female, and female plants will produce small black berries if planted near a male plant. Monrovia grows a mix of male and female plants, however, they are not sold by specific sex as the berries are not considered to be highly ornamental.|

Thrives in humus rich, evenly moist, well-drained soil; avoid soggy, poorly drained soils and extended dry spells. Provide part shade in hotter summer regions.
