Product Information

A uniquely spectacular evergreen shrub, Fatsia japonica 'Spiders Web' produces impressive, serrated glossy-green leaves that are highlighted with a frosted lacework of light webbing giving interest in any season.

Also known as the Japanese aralia or castor oil plant, mature Fatsia plants will go on to produce exotic umbrellas of creamy white flowers, followed by attractive deep purple, almost black berries.

Definitely a plant for any gardeners, whether novice or seasoned pro, f. japonica will grow well in any garden and is a great plant for difficult shady areas where other plants struggle - in fact they perform best in light, dappled shade, making a glossy backdrop to other plants with their amazing palmate leaves.

Compact enough to fit in a large pot on the patio where its architectural shape makes a dramatic, tropical feature, plants really need very little attention to give you amazing results especially if you're time strapped.

Supplied as an established plant in 3L pot ready for planting straight out into the garden, grows to 2.5m, flowers September - October.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Fatsia japonica 'Spiders Web':

  • Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling) and firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc

 

Aftercare advice for your Fatsia plant:

  • Best in dappled shade where it will bring an almost tropical look to beds and borders.
  • Not fussy with soil type and in fact is happiest in heavy clay.
  • Protect plants from cold, drying winds.
  • Older leaves may turn yellow and then brown - just trim them off leaving a 1in stub which quickly falls off.
  • Leaves will blacken in extreme cold (-4C or below) but miraculously the plant will quickly recover as the temperature rises - any damaged foliage can then be cut back.

 

Pruning Advice for your Castor oil plant:

  • Prune lightly in mid to late spring, trimming back any shoots that spoil its shape.
  • Older plants will tolerate rough treatment and the odd hack back is soon forgotten with a burst of new growth.
