Schefflera arbicola - HUGE Hawaiian Elf Schefflera (Schefflera arbicola - Hawaiian Elf Schefflera)

This huge Hawaiian Elf Schefflera is growing a couple of miles from where I live in San Diego, CA. It's one of the largest ones I've ever seen. Photo taken Aug. 29, 2011.

One in Hayward that size Alex. Far and away the largest. All Green. I have seen the variegated like small patio tree's.
They never bloom.

This was the largest one I had ever seen up to the time I took this photo. There's actually larger ones around than this. This one does bloom and produces a lot of seed.

What amazes me is how dry the soil is...I always watered the large ones I had in the Bay Area all the time. I never though of this as being a drought tolerant plant.
