A uniquely spectacular evergreen shrub, Fatsia japonica 'Spiders Web' produces impressive, serrated glossy-green leaves that are highlighted with a frosted lacework of light webbing giving interest in any season.
Also known as the Japanese aralia or castor oil plant, mature Fatsia plants will go on to produce exotic umbrellas of creamy white flowers, followed by attractive deep purple, almost black berries.
Definitely a plant for any gardeners, whether novice or seasoned pro, f. japonica will grow well in any garden and is a great plant for difficult shady areas where other plants struggle - in fact they perform best in light, dappled shade, making a glossy backdrop to other plants with their amazing palmate leaves.
Compact enough to fit in a large pot on the patio where its architectural shape makes a dramatic, tropical feature, plants really need very little attention to give you amazing results especially if you're time strapped.
Supplied as an established plant in 3L pot ready for planting straight out into the garden, grows to 2.5m, flowers September - October.
