Fatshedera lizei 'Annemieke' (Golden-Variegated Fatshedera) - An Evergreen upight-growing vining shrub with bold yellow variegated foliage. This is a variegated form of the unique bigeneric hybrid between Japanese Aralia (Fatsia japonica) and English Ivy (Hedera helix var. hibernica). The original hybrid, found in a garden in Nantes, France in 1910 has green ivy like leaves that are usually 5 lobed and much larger than English Ivy but with the woody upright growth more typical with the Aralia. This plant can produce umbels of white sterile flowers but this is a rare occurrence. This beautiful selection has splashes of yellow in the foliage. Full sun to deep shade - foliage is best in light shade. Irrigate regularly to only occasionally. It is evergreen to around 20 F and stem hardy down to around 15 F (though some report it recovering from stems frozen at 0 F. Can be trained upright as a shrub or even small tree, espaliered against a wall or trained as a large vine, though it lacks the aerial roots that ivy uses to fasten itself to a surface. We received this plant as 'Annemieke' but also note the spelling as 'Anna Mikkels'. Other synonyms for this plant are 'Lemon and Lime', 'Maculata' and 'Aureovariegata'.  The information displayed on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations that we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how it has performed in our crops out in the nursery field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well, and welcome hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information we do not mention that would aid others in growing Fatshedera lizei 'Annemieke'.
