Dwarf Umbrella Tree is an evergreen shrub growing to 8-9 m tall, free-standing, or clinging to the trunks of other trees. The leaves are palmately compound, with 7-9 leaflets, the leaflets 9-20 cm long and 4-10 cm broad (though often smaller in cultivation). Greenish flowers are produced in a 20 cm panicle of small umbels, each umbel 7-10 mm diameter with 5-10 flowers. Flowers are not as showy as the fruits. The flowers gradually turn into bright orange berries. These round fruits are flashy to look at, but are not for human consumption. Dwarf Umbrella Tree is native to Taiwan, cultivated worldwide.
