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.
