|If you are looking for a coarse textured plant that will grow in deep shade, look no further. Growing to 12 feet tall and wide, fatsia has distinguishing palmate leaves that are shiny and medium green. Umbels of white flowers appear in fall and are almost space-like in appearance. Black fruit follows. It is not uncommon for this plant to be sold as a houseplant. Well-drained soil is a must. Protect from drying winter winds.
