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 provided on this webpage is based on the research that we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library and that information that we have found about it on reliable online sources. We also take into consideration 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 incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information aiding others in growing Fatshedera lizei 'Annemieke'.
