After 15 years of fruitless searching, the late JC Raulston managed to locate Fatsia japonica 'Variegata' on a trip to the UK. After JC shared a rooted cutting with us, we dared to plant our new-found treasure outdoors for hardiness testing. Surprisingly, it proved to be dramatically more winter hardy than the common green form. The 7' tall x 7' wide (at 10 years) clump is composed of upright woody stems topped with large, tropical-looking, evergreen leaves edged with an uneven white border. In the garden, Fatsia japonica 'Variegata' makes a stunning, bold textural centerpiece for year-round interest. In late October/early November the clumps are topped by fascinating floral sprays of white flowers. From Zone 7a and north...what a nice houseplant!
