About Fatsia Japonica


Fatsia japonica is part of the Araliaceae family, a plant genus comprising of around 1,500 species. Its name "fatsi" translates to "eight" in Japanese, referring to the have eight lobes that make up its leaf. Fatsia japonica was introduced to the UK in 1838 and its tropical appearance has made it a very popular houseplant.


Outside, it thrives in a shady position. Its large leaves make it a useful architectural plant or an addition to a tropical planting scheme.


Fatsia japonica thrives in most places, especially in the shade. It likes the soil to be kept moist and enjoys regular misting. In July and August, remove any of its leaves that turn yellow. Though hardy, Fatsia japonica needs to be protected from hard frosts.
