Large leaved lovely with fantastic autumnal bloomsAdd a touch of the exotic to your garden with huge, shiny, architectural leaves for which fatsia is so valued. Despite its exotic looks, this evergreen shrub is hardy though you may want to offer some frost protection in the very coldest of winters. A superb choice for those challenging, shaded positions where the leaves will reflect light back into the dark corners.In autumn, small, creamy flowers are borne in compact globes, followed, in winter and spring, by clusters of black, spherical ornamental fruits. Fatsia is tough and resilient, tolerant of both coastal exposure and urban pollution. Given the RHS Award of Garden Merit for outstanding performance in the garden, Fatsia japonica is also known commonly as 'the False Castor Oil plant'.Fatsia japonica will reach a mature height and spread of up to 4m, preferring to be in moist, well-drained soil in sun or light shade. Despite its lush, tropical appearance, Fatsia japonica has an RHS hardiness rating of H5, so is hardy to -10 C.
