Description

Fatsia japonica 'Variegata' is a variegated cultivar of Fatsia japonica with splashes of cream on the foliage, particularly at the edges and tips. In theory it is not quite as tough as the type species but in practice it is hardy throughout most of the UK with the leaves quickly thawing out after a heavy frost.

It is tolerant of neglect and very adaptable, growing in either full sun or partial shade. It will do best is a moist soil in a sheltered position ideally with some dappled shade and protected from wind. Its variegation is good for brightening up dark corners and works well with other dramatic and large-leafed exotica.

In autumn its creamy straw-coloured inflorescences are a magnet to bees and are followed by dark purplish-black fruits.
