(aka: Fatshedera 'Aureomaculata', F. 'Aureovariegata') This is a most unique plant, a man-made bigeneric hybrid between Fatsia japonica and Hedera hibernica (ivy). The result is a sort-of-woody, sort-of-perennial...let's just say it's a plant with an identity crisis. The semi-upright woody stems of xFatshedera 'Annemieke' are clothed with large maple-like leaves of dark green, each with a giant yellow blotch in the center. Tolerant of dark shade, it makes a great colorful accent in the woodland garden. In our garden, it has survived 0 degrees F with fairly severe foliar damage as well as some tip dieback, but quickly recovers.
