This new fatsia is primarily grown for its handsome foliage, which looks as though it has been variously been dusted with icing sugar – with some leaves having had a more generous dusting than others! It makes a wonderful specimen, particularly when planted near white-flowering plants that complement the leaf variegations. It can also be used to help add light and colour to areas of lightly dappled shade.
- Garden care: Prune lightly in mid to late spring, trimming shoots that spoil the symmetry. Protect plants from cold, drying winds.
