Description

This is a intergeneric hybrid created by crossing Fatsia japonica 'Moserii' (Japanese fatsia) with Hedera helix (common ivy)  in the Araliaceae family. Semi-climbing vine/shrub that makes an equally good groundcover.  It can be trained to climb like a vine, but it needs support. Very tolerant to adverse conditions including air pollution and costal sea spray.  Plant in shade or north exposure for winter protection.  Works well planted under taller shrubs, in containers, or in boarders.  It even makes a good houseplant.  Pinch young tips to promote bushy growth.  Propagates by softwood or semi-hardwood cuttings.
