A HAND­SOME EV­ER­GREEN

Country Living (UK) - - Craft -

I’ve al­ways found the easy-go­ing glossy-leaved ev­er­green Fat­sia japon­ica to be a use­ful shrub for in­tro­duc­ing in­ter­est into a dif­fi­cult cor­ner and now there’s another va­ri­ety, ‘Spi­der’s Web’ (left), to try. Its large, pal­mate leaves are heav­ily laced with white, so it would com­ple­ment a white flower bor­der or can be grown as a spec­i­men plant in a large con­tainer, in loam-based com­post. A great choice for par­tial shade, it costs £14.99 for a 1.5-litre pot from Cro­cus (01344 578111; cro­cus.co.uk).
