It is Morgana ... I was surprised to see them plant lots of these along a wall at our local supermarket , they have been there for several year now and are approx. 7 /8 ft tall and survive all the winters ........

Milky i've got one of these they are as tough as old boots as the saying goes, i keep cutting mine down every spring as its in my front garden, near the footpath.

Morgana....does he make em in his shed? Is thsat what he does down there? Clarice....Yes they are very tough and need cutting back to keep them in check...

I'm always fascinated that something that looks so exotic is so hardy. I must take a look at mine - I dont think its as spectacular as your's Maureen, how could it possibly be.

Yes it is exotic looking Dawn, I think its the leaf shape, and the high shine it always has.....I dont know how old this one is as it was here before me, but I have really cut it back hard and its not suffered at all....

They grow quite a trunk, dont they. You can take cuttings easily too - well my Mum can :-)

Ha ha ha....Dawn all I do is take a saw to it to cut through the boughs he he he Lol

I love mine. It was the first plant I bought and although not a fan at the time of evergreens, I really like the shape and form of this plant and its leaves. Very hardy too!

Yes I have to agree Oddbillie....

I had a fatsia in the other garden and I slashed it back every year. It grew enormous. It didn't seem to mind the cold winters. The hoverflies liked the flowers.

26 Oct, 2009

 

Yes Lindak....its always got lots of hoverflys arround it, and the bees love it too.

This year is the first time it has had these flower (?) things on the top of it. Hoping that it gets to be a large plant.

21 Nov, 2009

 

Oh it will Busylizzy.....I have to cut mine back severely ever couple of years...
