    Found someone had dumped a load of cuttings on my neighbours raised beds on the lotty...(yes very cheeky!!)

                    Definitely looks like one. Next time you're this way you can have as many cuttings as you like. :blue thumb:

                      Lucky you! T'other Half found a large potted Schefflera (Umbrella Tree) at our rubbish bins some years ago and we have two now.

                        Might be the ordinary green version.
                        Mine gets a bit chlorotic looking at times. :biggrin:

                          I agree but they could have come from the lower leaves of Sundance, as in the picture above that I've just taken.

                            I miss mine from my last garden. I don't think it would survive the low temperatures here.
