Fatsia






FATSIA JAPONICA (_syns Aralia japonica_ and _A. Sieboldii_).--Japan,

1858. This is of no particular value as a flowering shrub, but being

hardy in most districts, and having large handsome leaves that impart

to it a tropical appearance, it is well worthy of culture. The flowers

are ivory-white, and produced in large umbels towards the end of

autumn, but our early frosts too often mar their beauty. In this

country it grows about 10 feet high, and is usually what is termed

"leggy" in appearance, and thrives well in any good loamy soil if

fairly dry.
