Fatsia Japonica (Aralia Sieboldi)

Originating from Japan and Korea, these dramatic looking tropical shrubs have a glossy dark green color and deep lobed leaves. Bonus: they grow year round here!

Where They Do Well:

They like shady areas and look great in containers, entryways, borders, and patios.


Fatsia Japonica plants require regular watering. If you see yellow leaves, add a little iron it it’s soil. These plants can really show off their stuff when you thin them out once in a while. You might even see a flower or fruit on them.
