Fatsia japonica Camouflage 'Murakumo Nishiki'


Fatsia 'Murakumo Nishiki' is a fantastically gorgeous shrub tropical-looking leaves with varying markings of yellow, light green, and dark green.

Fatsia 'Murakumo Nishiki' means "gathering clouds brocade" in Japanese which is far more poetic and peaceful than the trademark name Camouflage which it has been given for marketing in North America. Monikers aside this is a fantastically gorgeous shrub with palmate, tropical-looking leaves up to 18 inches long and wide with varying markings of yellow, light green, and dark green. Every leaf is different. White flowers are popular with bees in autumn.
