Umbrella plant (Eng.), Sambreelplant (Afr.)
Several species are grown in pots as houseplants, most commonly Schefflera actinophylla (Umbrella Tree) and Schefflera arboricola (Dwarf Umbrella Tree). Schefflera can also be grown outdoors in areas with no frost or where protected against frost in sheltered positions. They are grown for their attractive foliage.
