Angyo Star Fatshedera
This superb form of the man-made bigeneric hybrid between Japanese Aralia (Fatsia) and English Ivy (Hedera) was selected in Japan and brought to the US by plantsman Ted Stephens, who named it after the town which contains many famous Japanese nurseries. The thick, sweet gum-shaped leaves of dark green are surrounded by a wide creamy white border and held along the semi-upright free-form (nursery lingo for not straight) growing stems. This is a fairly slow growing, but exquisitely beautiful selection. More details below

Special Attributes

This superb form of the man-made bigeneric hybrid between Japanese Aralia (Fatsia) and English Ivy (Hedera) was selected in Japan and brought to the US by plantsman Ted Stephens, who named it after the town which contains many famous Japanese nurseries. The thick, sweet gum-shaped leaves of dark green are surrounded by a wide creamy white border and held along the semi-upright free-form (nursery lingo for not straight) growing stems. This is a fairly slow growing, but exquisitely beautiful selection. We have it tucked in a patially shady corner in our gardens where it has climbed up a short trellis to maybe three feet and sprawled across the ground to form a patch maybe 12 to 18 inches high Provides outstanding color and texture in shady to partially shaded sites.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Angyo Star Fatshedera is ideal for use as an accent, in groupings or mass plantings, or to climb and cover low fences and walls in shady to partially shaded home foundation plantings, landscape borders and garden beds. In home foundation plantings, it does best on the east side of the home, which receives the morning sun but shade in the afternoon. Very nice around garden ponds and in tropical-look gardens. Fatshedera also makes a great container plant for use outdoors or as a year round houseplant. For those who live and garden north of USDA Zone 7a, containers can be overwintered indoors.

Recommended Spacing:  3-5' for mass plantings or to cover fence or low walls;  10'+ for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Angyo Star Fatshedera prefers a well-drained but moist soil and part shade to full shade. Ours is doing well in a location where it receives filtered sun to dappled shade for most of the day. Avoid direct afternoon sun. Morning and late evening sun is okay. Constantly soggy soil or standing water is problematic, so plant in a well-drained site. Can be grown in the ground or in containers which can be moved indoors during the winter months where the plant is not cold hardy. Hardy outdoors in USDA Zones 7a-9b.
