Fatsia Japonica

Fatsia japonica, sometimes called Japanese aralia, is a shade-loving shrub that thrives in moist conditions. It's usually grown for its deeply lobed leaves, which can get up to a foot wide. Planted in the right spot, fatsia is a low-maintenance plant. As a plus for coastal gardeners, it's generally salt-tolerant as well.
