I am in utter confusion about the Umbrella Plant.Some call this ubiquitous, undercover weedthe umbrella plant.
Some others state unequivocally that this is the original one. Undoubtedly, one of them is a usurper. U decide for yourself. It is not urgent.
My thanks to the team of ABC Wednesday.
Beautiful captures for the day and perfect for the U Day! Lovely plant! Hope your week is going well!ReplyDelete
This first photo is actually a papyrus, which I have heard called umbrella plant. The second is a scheffleria which is also sometimes called the umbrella plant. I'm like you - who's to decide?ReplyDelete
Here in Oz we call Scheffleras Umbrella Plants. The Papyrus we just call 'Weed'. It pops up everywhere and does tend to take over pretty quickly.ReplyDelete
UNKNOWN by me!ReplyDelete

Know both plants but never knew them to be tagged as umbrella plants. Thanks!ReplyDelete
I see very opinions about these plants, but the correct botanical name is: Cyperus alternifolius and Schefflera octophylla. Have a nice dayReplyDelete
