Tetrapanax papyrifer steroidal giant is a selected clone with larger more massive leaves than the already big normal form. This giant clone produces leaves 3 feet wide or more. It can be identified form the other clone due to the deep leaf cuts. Here is Kentucky I have had it return for several years with heavy mulching. Each season it can reach 8 to 10 feet tall or more.
