You can even get a variegated one...Fatsia japonica "Spiders Web"

Thank you that's great il search those up now ! Thanks x
To each his own, but IMHO that variegated form just looks ill.
Not for me
nor me, but I'm not a fan of variegation at all
I like proper variegation, eg holly, but not variegated fatsia, pyrancantha, ceanothus etc
It is a lovely plant and easy to keep under control. If you do not have much space chop it back hard in spring. It grows back quickly and is easy to cut with a garden saw.
I did mine last year and it looks good now.
This plants has it's merits - the bees like it and the flowers are very similar to ivy flowers (from a distance) but without the scent. I think it is fairly easy to grow, we have a couple of them in our front garden and a small sapling that has self seeded.
I love them (although also hate the variegated form) and they provide very good structure in gardens over winter.
Mine is fairly near my pond, so it's good for wildlife to gain cover quickly.
Fairy girl what's the variegated form ?? And why the dslkike? This will def help me decide which is best to buy . Thanks
