Aralia 'Sun King' is the 2020 Perennial Plant of the Year...congratulations! Aralia 'Sun King' forms a dazzling 6' tall x 4' wide clump that emerges in mid-spring with bright gold compound leaves. With a few hours of sun, the foliage remains bright gold through the summer, at which time the clumps are topped with 2' tall spikes of tiny white flowers followed by ornamental black fruit. Brought to the US and named by Barry Yinger, who found it in a Japanese department store nursery, Aralia 'Sun King' is truly one of the most amazing new perennial introductions in the last decade!
