Can Fatsia japonica tolerate clay soil that can become quite dry in summer? I would like to grow one in a shady corner of my garden.



How about a nice conifer instead ;o)

Lol that's not the answer Blue, it's an odd spot and I would like something evergreen. You're not a Fatsia fan then :-))

Conifers are evergreen! lol ...I like all plants Anne, just in one of those moods today ha :0) x

Fatsia will do fine in clay soil, but like any other plant, in extended dry periods during summer (2 months, no rain) it may need a bit of watering, and in particular during its first year or two.

Bluespruce, go 'green', just for a day, and be GreenFat, or something, just to shock us all. Phil J
