A new variety of the Caster Oil plant
A large unusual evergreen Shrub which has foliage that looks like it has been dusted with icing sugar. It retains its leaf colour in shade. Leaf colour is a result of a virus deliberately changing the colour of the plant. This cleaver breeding does not damage the plant but prevents the clour from reverting to green in low light.. Try also looking at Photinia Pink Crispy
which also has unusual foliage and a tint of salmon, red.
This is an evergreen with a real tropical look that is most hardy and unusual.
Thick erect stems support huge dark palmate leaves smudged with cream and light green. Roundish clusters of small cream flowers appear in the Autumn.
It can grow to about 6-10 ft tall. It is frost hardy and does well in the shade where it benefits greatly from just a little extra attention over other plants with feed and water.
A showstopper in the garden and a great way to brighten a dark corner, not to mention a talking point as the variegated fatsia is a rare plant to find.
This is a strong plant approx 40 cms tall in a 3 litre container.
