Fatsia japonica is a medium-sized evergreen shrub. It has large lobed leaves that are very architectural. Outdoors the Fatsia japonica favours dappled shade but can also be grown in a sunny spot. In autumn, the plant blooms with beautiful white flowers and small black fruit.
Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.

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.
In 2020 the Royal Horticultural Society awarded Fatsia japonica with the Award of Garden Merit.
