Design Ideas: Japanese Aralia is a perfect foundation plant that provides rich green background foliage in partially shaded landscapes. Its large exotic leaves belie its ability to withstand some frost. Perfect lush foliage for absorbing glare around swimming pools and water gardens. Good subject for night lighting.

Thrives in humus-rich, acidic soils with bright to dappled shade, sheltered from drying winds. Protect from direct sun exposure in hot summer climates. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with a balanced slow release fertilizer in spring. Prune only as needed for a tidy appearance.

Fatsia is awesome but...
by Mossman, May 16, 2017

I love how the fatsia (variegated) sets off many other plants in my yard. However I have a contender for the leaves. The deer seem to really like the taste unfortunately.
