What do you with a shady area under a tree or in a nook? Why Japanese Aralia, most commonly named Fatisa japonica of course! Fatsia is a broadleaf evergreen shrub with glossy green leaves that span to 12” wide in most cases. Soft textured, and a tropical effect, this shrub will fill any unoccupied space where other plants will not thrive. The flowers will remind you of little drumsticks which adds a neat distinction to its overall beauty in late fall. Filling an area 6 feet by 6 feet, Fatsia is great for mass plantings or specimen plantings.

Care

Easy to grow and maintain, Fatsia is great for outdoors and even work well in a container outside on the patio or inside the home. Yearly pruning is recommended for a well-branched rounded form. Fatsia loves acid and well-drained soil to thrive, spring fertilization of 12-6-6 acid fertilizer will keep this beauty growing for the remainder of the year in top form.

History

Fatsia was a favorite plant of the Victorians.

Uses and suggestions

Fatsia makes a great backdrop for annuals and perennials of all types. It blends well with Azaleas and camellias bringing out the colors with its dark green foliage.
