Fatsia Japonica: 'small white flowers in terminal compound umbels'... according to the RHS website. Oooh..I was wondering how to describe those spherical buds. They have white flowers followers by black berries. Originates from Japan and looks pretty impressive all year round due to their enormous leaves. They are 45cm wide and wouldn't look out of place in the film Jurrasic Park. I particularly like the very light green with the ivy green colour of this photo.
