A must for the tropicalissimo look with its huge leaves. Spreads by underground to form a colony. The indumentum on the leaves makes some sneeze.

Info

Rice paper plant, once thought not to thrive in our climate has made a giant splash in PNW gardens. And when we say Giant SPLASH we're not kidding. HUGE leaves on this variety can be up to 4' across. Uh-huh. Advance planning, possibly with an impact statement are required. Close relative of Fatsia japonica. Leaves are more entire though and felted. May be deciduous in winters with temps below 15 °F. Important to establish it early and well the first year. Rich soil and regular summer water. This plant will eventually run to make an impressive jurassic patch. Yay.

A selected giant form of rice paper plant. HUGE 3'+ leaves on stems to 15'. Can you say 'statement'? Related to Fatsia japonica, but with larger leaves -- much larger -- very felted, and less cut. Best in sun to part shade with protection from wind. Rich soil and regular summer water to establish. Can be deciduous if temperatures drop below 15 °F but re-sprouts easily. Root hardy to 10 °F, bottom of USDA zone 8.
