I'm not aware of any Fatsia cultivars that are green as your is. There are seven or eight variegated ones that I know of.

Also, there are several species in the Asia-Pacific that are very similar to F. japonica; it could be one of those, considering your location...

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Fatsia polycarpa is a possibility...7 to 9 lobes and very glossy leaves.

Hi vestia & themoonhowl,

Re: Fatsia Japonica, Paper Plant, Japanese Aralia
Thank you for your input and time.


Delhi, India

It is other way


Moreover number of carpels are important, more in F. polycarpa

Consider this as normal form of Fatsia japonica, not a special cultivar

Thanks Singhg. I appreciate the heads up.
