Few people have probably heard of a phenomenon known rather morbidly as the widowmaker. Like so many tales, it originates from the dark and mysterious world of woods and forests. But it might just strike closer to home, especially if you have trees in your garden.
"Many thanks for the delivetry of our plant - a very nice specimen in perfect condition. We are so please with it, we shall be ordering another one today.." Thank you. M Brown
The 'Chinese Angelica Tree' Much like its close cousin A. elata but with extra large doubly pinnate leaves. Impressive large heads of creamy white flowers late summer -early autumn. Not over fussy about soil or aspect.
Aralia spinosa is commonly known as the Devil's Walking stick and for good reason; the branches of this striking large shrub are covered in conspicuous thorny spines so certainly no human would be able to use these as a walking stick.
