An excellent large pop of color for partial to full shade gardens. Sun King Aralia emerges mid-spring with bright gold compound leaves up to three feet long that contrast with the reddish-brown stems. A few hours of sunlight each day will result in the foliage remaining golden yellow, while deeper shade will produce a range of chartreuse to lime green colors. In mid to late summer, clusters of tiny white flowers will produce inedible purple fruit. Forming a large clump, this deer resistant perennial is paired well with blue Hosta, purple leafed Heuchera, and other woodland plants.
