It was introduced as an ornamental in Singapore, Madeira, the Canary Islands, Mexico, the Galapagos Islands, Florida, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, Lesser Antilles, Hawaii and Pacific islands, where it has escaped from gardens and yards and invaded both disturbed and native unaltered forests (Gucker, 2011). 1692 pp. Order: Apiales 2.

In Florida, flowers of S. actinophylla are visited by the red-whiskered bulbuls Pycnonotus jocosus, which escaped from captivity around 1960 (Carleton and Owre, 1975). In some areas (e.g., Florida and Hawaii, USA), it is an invasive weed and therefore planting is highly unadvised. [3], The up to 1,000 flowers produced by the plant generate large amounts of nectar, attracting nectar-eating birds that pollinate them. http://www.mobot.org/MOBOT/research/APweb/. Fruits and branches with fruits should be removed from treated areas. Though often grown as a houseplant, umbrella tree (Schefflera actinophylla, also called Brassaia arboricola) contains toxins potentially harmful to people and animals.Reactions to the poison are not usually severe, but you should contact a poison control for help if someone eats part of the plant. [4] Its leaves are a favourite food of the Bennett's tree-kangaroo. Bissea: Boletin sobre Conservacion de Plantad del Jardin Botanico Nacional, 6:1-140. In the case of larger trees, it is recommended to cut notches into the cambium around the stem and apply undiluted glyphosphate or triclopyr (Englberger, 2009), or to cut and then treat the stumps with the following herbicides: Repeated applications of herbicides are necessary in order to avoid re-sprouts (Motooka et al., 2003; Englberger, 2009).
