Spider's Web Fatsia - Paperplant
Fatsia japonica 'Spider's Web'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 8a (7b?)-10b   Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 8a, where this Fatsia variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.

Special Attributes

With its large, palmate leaves, at first sight one would assume that Spider's Web Fatsia is a tropical plant, but it's far from it. It is actually a cold hardy broadleaf evergreen plant. 

Spider's Web Fatsia is unique from other varieties in that its large leaves appear as though they've been airbrushed and speckled with white paint, a characteristic that's sure to light up shady areas in your landscape and gardens. The plant loves heat and humidity and stands up to the cold equally as well; hardy down to zero degrees! 

For our customers living in coastal areas you'll be happy to know this stunning beauty also tolerates salty air.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a mound 3 to 5 feet tall and around 5 feet wide, Spider's Web Fatsia is ideal for use as an accent, in groupings, or as a natural low hedge 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. Fatsia 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 8a, containers can be overwintered indoors.

Cultural Preferences

Fatsia are exceptionally easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and part shade to shade. 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. Fatsia make great container plants and can be enjoyed indoors where not winter hardy.
