Fat­sia poly­carpa ‘Green­fin­gers’

This in­ter­est­ing Fat­sia is newly in­tro­duced from Tai­wan and, as the name would sug­gest, its leaves are more fin­ger like than the tra­di­tional Fat­sia giv­ing it a dif­fer­ent trop­i­cal look. De­spite its ten­der looks ‘Green Fingers’ seems to be tol­er­ant of frost con­di­tions and is re­put­edly hardy to around -10C. It can grow to around 2m in the gar­den but re­sponds well to prun­ing, mak­ing it a good sub­ject for con­tain­ers as well as a shady or a part-shaded bor­der.
