Plant of the Week: Arbicola Trinette

Arbicola Trinette

Arbicola trinette is a beautiful variety of Schefflera that is most often used for its outstanding variegated foliage that adds pops of color to the landscape. It is can be used as an accent in the garden or as colorful container plant for the pool side or patio (without the flower mess). It is easy to grow with few pests or disease problems.

Fertilize twice yearly in spring and late summer with slow release fertilizer. If winter damaged established plants come back in spring. Arbicola grows 3-4 feet in height and width and is salt tolerant. However, it is not deer resistant.
