This striking evergreen shrub, commonly known as Rice Paper Plant, boasts large, tropical leaves and a bold presence in any garden or landscape.

Tetrapanax papyrifer Rex typically reaches a height of 2-3 meters, creating a dramatic focal point with its impressive stature and architectural form. Its enormous, deeply lobed leaves add a tropical flair to gardens, reminiscent of exotic landscapes.

While Tetrapanax papyrifer Rex is not primarily grown for its flowers, it may produce small clusters of creamy-white blooms in late summer to early autumn, attracting bees and other pollinators to the garden.

For optimal growth, plant your Tetrapanax papyrifer Rex in a sheltered position with well-draining soil. It thrives in full sun to partial shade, making it adaptable to various garden conditions.

Spring or early summer is the best time to plant Tetrapanax papyrifer Rex, allowing it to establish before periods of extreme heat. Ensure the soil is kept consistently moist during its establishment phase to encourage healthy growth.

Feeding your Tetrapanax papyrifer Rex with a balanced fertilizer in spring will promote lush foliage and vigorous growth. Once established, it requires minimal feeding and maintenance, making it a low-maintenance addition to the garden.

While Tetrapanax papyrifer Rex may not be a significant attractant to pollinators due to its inconspicuous flowers, its large leaves provide shelter and habitat for insects and wildlife, contributing to overall garden biodiversity.
