Planting Instructions for the Arbaricola Trinette
Add a combination of composted cow manure and top soil (or organic peat humus) to the hole when you plant.
Branch trimming - rather than cutting across leaves - looks best, though these shrubs can be kept more manicured with a hedge trimmers.
Branches are fleshy and easy to cut even on older plants. Trim as needed for shape, and in spring (late March through early April) you can do a harder pruning for size.
Water regularly but give the plant enough time to dry out between waterings. These shrubs don't like wet locations and are considered drought-tolerant once they're established...though a regular, well-timed watering keeps them looking full and lush.
Fertilize 3 times a year - spring, summer and fall - with a quality granular fertilizer.

Charmingly pretty as an accent, foundation planting, or in a garden bed, this dwarf Schefflera can add tropical flair to an otherwise ho-hum landscape. It can be grown to highlight other plants or stand out as star of the show with its bright yellow and green foliage.
