Fatsia Japonica ‘Spider’s Web’ is an extraordinarily handsome foliage plant, its large, ‘palmately lobed’ leaves are each differently variegated to produce an attractive effect that suggests a gentle dusting of white. In addition to its leafy good looks, it will produce spherical clusters of small, white flowers in the autumn that are attractive to late pollinators.
While it looks like a semi-tropical plant, F. ‘Spider’s Web’ will tolerate the British weather if protected from full sun, the frost and drying winds. Ideally, plant it in a container and position in a sheltered spot where it will grow into a large statement plant.
