What can I say? It came through the winter a little bit tattered but look at it now! Fatsia is an araliaceous ? evergreen shrub that is about at its limit here in Zone.....we'll call it 7b. Tolerates pretty deep shade; I have one growing against a house wall under a 12' wide deck.
This one lives beside the path to the Pagoda in the Asian Collection. There are others in the vicinity some variegated, some not.
