What makes the Fatsia variagata stand out as such an effective shrub is its versatility. This variegated Fatsia is very happy in just about any location indoors or out. Indors it is frequently used because it does so well in poorly lit spaces, whereas most indoor plants require better light levels. Outdoors the Fatsia variagata again proves its versatility residing happily in dark shady corners or in exposed, sunny and even windy situations.
Fatsia japonica variagata is really one of the few evergreen shrubs that can offer a This year round tropical presence with its big glossy-leaved tropical foliage. The fact that the Fatsia can tolerate shady situations and is evergreen really does make this plant invaluable, as so few evergreen shrubs can thrive in this role.
Throughout the growing season give this variegated Fatsia plenty of water and fertilizer to really encourage it's growth rate and vigour. Fatsia japonica variagata is hardy but can pick up foliage damage in winter in the colder parts of the UK. The damaged foliage can be removed in spring, allowing for vigorous regrowth.
Due to it's tropical appearance we like to work this variegated Fatsia into tropical themes with palms such as the Chusan palm (Trachycarpus fortuneii) or any bamboo variety. Working in shady situations plant Fatsia variagata amongst other shade lovers such as tree ferns (Dicksonia antactica) and Giant Rhubarb (Gunnera manicata).
