FATSIA JAPONICA (ヤツデの花)

Fatsia japonica is a native plant here.  It has a large leaves sharply split into seven to nine segments; it is called 'Yatsude' in Japanese which means 'eight hand'.  The leaves are dark and glossy even in winter.  In autumn, it blooms large branching heads of tiny white flowers, gathering into spheres.  White spheres look gorgeous in contrast with green leaves.  In winter, the flowers give way to clusters of black berries...

Fatsia japonica is ornamental and I love it.
