Also known as the Castor Oil Plant or Japanese aralia, Fatsia are evergreen shrubs that originate in Japan. They have large, dramatic, shiny, leathery leaves with small white flowers in terminal compound umbels and small, black fruits.

Perfect for difficult growing conditions, the Fatsia look spectacular indoors as well as outside where the leaves darken and weather to a thicker texture. It grows well in heavy soil, copes with little to no direct sunlight and is fine in a darker corner of any garden. It can also be grown in a large container with a loam-based compost and appreciates a regular supply of water.

If you have a stone or brick wall in a garden, consider situating a Fatsia nearby as it’s striking appearance will grab your attention or using as a backdrop to other exotic plants.
