Native to Southeast Asia, the Fatsia Japonica can be grown both outside and as a houseplant. It’s a very popular plant due to its attractive foliage and few care needs – even Alan Titchmarsh, is said to be a fan. It can produce small, white flowers in the autumn and these are usually followed by black fruits.
This plant has eight leaf lobes, which is where it gets its name 'fatsia' from, the Japanese word meaning 'eight'.
The Fatsia Japonica is pretty low maintenance with its care needs, it just needs some protection from the elements during the winter, so consider providing it with shelter. It also has a tendency to grow wide and can reach a spread of around 3-4 metres at maturity, so make sure you give it plenty of room. If you have pets, you'll be pleased to know this plant is non-toxic.

Keep an eye on your Fatsia Japonica as cold weather can cause the leaves to drop or even turn black. If they do turn black, resist the urge to prune as they should change back to green when the warmer weather returns.
