Fatsia japonica ‘Murakumo Nishiki’

(1 customer review)



Fatsia japonica ‘Murakumo Nishiki’ is another fabulous Fatsia and this is a much sought-after variety with wonderful variegation.  Originating in Japan, this architectural shrub is hugely versatile and ideal for semi to full shade where it will make a handsome specimen.  

The large, palmate leaves are bright yellow-green splashed with deep green variegation towards the edges. During the summer months, large clusters of round white-green flowers emerge which are followed by small black fruits – both are popular with wildlife. Fatsia japonica ‘Murakumo Nishiki’ is a hardy and robust shrub, easy to grow and suitable for use in mixed borders or in containers.  A bold statement plant and excellent in an exotic garden where it will sit perfectly amongst other hardy exotics.  

‘Murakumo Nishiki’ translates into ‘gathering clouds brocade’ which perhaps alludes to the variegated leaves – or perhaps not!  Whatever, this is a fabulous plant and worthy of a place in your garden.  Be sure to give it free draining but moisture retentive soil and avoid full sun.

    Very informative website, excellent choice of plants and speedy despatch and delivery. This is a very attractive variety which will add a touch of the exotic to the shady part of my garden. The plant looks very healthy and well cared for, plus the size is similar to that of the one in the photo on the website – I have been disappointed with some plants provided by other online suppliers! An excellent source of unusual hardy plants and very fairly priced. I will be ordering more from the Big Plant Nursery in future.
