Japanese Fatsia Fatsia japonica

Description

Place in a protected site as the leaves will brown if exposed to full sun or wind.  This semi-dense plant has the appearance of tropical foliage.  It tolerates air pollution, is moderately tolerant of salt spray and tolerates a range of soil conditions.  This plant can also be grown as a houseplant which is a positive attribute considering that deer frequently damage it.
