Aralias in this genus are indiginous to Indonesia, where they have some medicinal and food uses by natives. There are actually fossil records of ancient Aralias found in some places. The Balfours we grow in our homes have a decidedly prehistoric look, with their thickened, gnarled trunks and their ruffly foliage. Their somewhat tri-lobed, circle-shaped leaves with yellow branching veins are a patchwork quilt of all kinds of shades of greens. Added folds here and there on them adds to the feeling there's a wind ruffling through them. A grown up plant of 6' plus has an architectural interest that asks for a corner of its own. Very nice with artistic lighting on it at night.
