Plant Features

Sun King Aralia was the 2020 Perennial Plant of the Year and for good reason! This golden beauty starts out with bright gold leaves that are held on nicely contrasting reddish brown stems. It will remain yellow all season if grown in an area that offers 4-5 hours of sun. If grown in heavier shade, the foliage changes to a lime green. It you have a partially shaded spot that needs some color, Sun King is the plant for you. Aralias attract honeybees while deer avoid it.
