Japanese Aralia


Fatsia japonica is valued for its foliage, architectural habit, and late display of flowers and is ideal in a shady location where a bold pattern is wanted. Big glossy dark evergreen foliage backs clusters of creamy white flowers in fall followed by clusters of small shiny black fruit.
