Fatsia Japonica

Fatsia Japonica : glossy-leaf paper plant : I called it the hand plant for a long time.

Native to Southern Japan, Southern Korea, and Taiwan. This hearty evergreen shrub produces white umbels in late autumn and little fruits in spring. The most interesting bit about this plant is the inter-generic hybrid Fatshedera Lizei.

My Fatsia has been transplanted, moved (to a new yard), potted up, chopped in half, and propagated. This plant is very resilient, and beautiful. *tip* when rooting, you can trim the leaves so they don’t need as much water.
