Fatsia japonica 'Variegata' (Variegated Japanese Aralia) - This is an evergreen perennial with a tropical look. Thick, erect stems support huge dark palmate leaves smudged with cream and light green. Roundish clusters of small cream flowers appear in the fall. It can grow to about 6-10 ft. tall. It is frost hardy and does well in the shade with moderate watering. This slow growing plant has been known to self-sow and sucker but we have not seen evidence of this in our garden. Benefits from fertilizers that include iron. A showstopper in the garden and a great way to brighten a dark corner.  The information provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations in our nursery of crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Fatsia japonica 'Variegata'.
