The genus Plerandra has undergone extensive reclassification over time, and has been considered a synonym of the genus Schefflera. Also known as False Aralia, species in this genus may grow between 8–15 m tall and up to 2 m wide. Classed as trees or shrubs, they produce evergreen, toothed foliage coloured dark green to coppery red. Flowers, rarely produced when grown indoors, are pale green and develop into black fruits. The species Plerandra elegantissima is often grown as a houseplant in temperate regions, and is commonly cultivated in Hawaii, Florida and parts of California as an outdoor tree.
