The nursery said it was a Ming Aralia (no latin name given). Despite its horrible pruning job, I consider finding this a real coup. I looked at images on the internet to identify it. Some have huge round leaves...there's so much variation. P.fruticosa has white bark, which mine doesn't. P. balfouriana has leaves edged in white, which mine doesn't. P. victoriae, internet pic didn't look quite like mine. Seems the closest, though. Are ALL the above called Ming Aralias? If so, where would the word MING be placed in the Latin description? Pardon the poor quality pics.
