Seems Like I disappeared into the wind after getting to say my hello, but it has been a busy summer here. An update as well in the NUT-GRASS is almost eradicated, still have to dispose of the soil and watching for stragglers to pop up now.

I picked up one of the trees (Photo's attached) I want for my miniature garden, one of the Aralia varieties, but the exact variety remains unclear, and with a bit of searching I have it narrowed down to the Ming Aralia... I think. I know the Gardener at the shop was certain of Aralia family, remembering when she placed the order, but the sub species, did not make it to the tag somehow.
My question is, after doing research, saying Ming Aralia does not conclude this one's identity as there are several varieties of the Ming. Now of course research also threw me off the path of arailia's and onto false... well not knowing anything about plants, it was time to turn the knowledgeable "AND KIND" people here.
Does anyone know which and if this of the Aralia family, and is it Ming, then is it ?? Parsley, Snowflake?? OK OK I don't ask much do I.
At least the other lil' fella's all came with the tags so I KNOW how to NOT water them :)
Any help sure would be appreciated.
Blessings to All and Thank YOU!
Tim

Thank you TerraFirma for the confirmation.
Now just not to kill the poor thing.
Do you know what the difference is of the various names given on the web like "parsley" and Snowflake" for this species?

Hi Tim,
Click on this link... http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Ming+Aralia&butto...
And it will take you to the page in the Database that shows several different varieties. I'm not familiar enough with the others to be able to give you 'for sure' info.
Don't know about "parsley", I didn't see that one in the database, but 'Snowflake' is there, and it looks like it may be a variegated variety. I think you'll find that they are just different cultivars of the genus Polyscias.

Thank You! Acorn 's
So very kind!

Good day! Good gardening!
Tara
