For a medium-sized shrub that will bring architectural interest to your garden all year long, Fatsia japonica is just the ticket!
A spectacular evergreen shrub, it produces impressively large, serrated, glossy green leaves, which remain throughout the year, giving interest in all seasons. Also known as the Japanese Aralia, mature Fatsia produce exotic spikes of creamy white flowers, followed by attractive deep purple, near black berries.
Fatsia japonica grow well in any garden and is a great plant for tricky shaded areas, where others struggle, in fact they perform best in light or dappled shade, for a glossy backdrop to other plants with amazing palm-like leaves.

Fatsia is also a great plant to complement a large decorative pot for the patio, where the architectural shape can make a dramatic, tropical feature.
