Sun King Spikenard
Aralia cordata ‘Sun King’ (P-1873)
Bold, brilliant and tropical-style, this phenomenal newly introduced cultivar was first spotted by Barry Yinger in a Japanese nursery. Large, compound golden-yellow leaves grow up to 3 ft. long on energetic reddish brown stems, quickly framing a rounded bushy clump that turns lime-green when there’s too much shade. Topped with 2 ft. tall spikes of honeybee-friendly small white flowers, ‘Sun King’ promises statuesque beauty wherever it’s planted, bewitches birds with its purplish black berries and enjoys moist well-draining sites.
Size: 4' 0" – 6' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
