The foliage of this recently introduced fatsia looks as though it has been dusted with icing sugar - with some leaves having had a more generous dusting than others! A stately plant, it will make an attractive addition to a cool room or conservatory where it will grow to a generous size over time.
Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.
- Home care: Keep in a cool, bright and well-ventilated room, ideally without central heating in winter. Water regularly during the growing season, and feed with general purpose fertiliser, but stop feeding and reduce watering during the winter. Mist the leaves with water regularly and repot using a good-quality potting compost in spring.
- Humans/Pets: Fruit are ornamental - not to be eaten
