This amazing tropical-looking favorite is grown as a dieback perennial north of Zone 8 and as a shrub from Zone 8 south. The fast-growing, thick, fuzzy, upright stems of Tetrapanax papyrifera are clothed with large, equally fuzzy, green castor bean-like leaves emerging from an underground rhizome. Rice paper plant will spread underground in good soils, so don't plant it near small defenseless plants.
