Due to the winter weather, orders from these states will ship in the spring, April to May: CA, CO, IA, ID, KS, ME, MI, MN, MT, ND, NE, NH, NV, OR, SD, UT, VT, WA, WI, WY. And due to the extreme cold and wind which we experienced through the Christmas holidays of December 2022, many Osmanthus varieties won't be shipped until we are assured there is no cold damage. This may be as late as April or May, 2023. We may choose to delay shipping other plants as well.

Spider Web Fatsia. This Fatsia has a reticulated type of variegation with white veins and green interveinal areas. It displays its best variegation in soils with lower fertility. High nitrogen turns leaves totally green, suppressing its variegation. This cultivar is dramatic when grown under proper conditions. In Japan there is a "seed strain" called 'Tsumugi Shibori’ which comes fairly true from seed and is rarely grown from cuttings. In their book "Variegated Plants in Color" (1998), Dr. Masato Yokoi and Yoshimichi Hirose gave it the name 'Spider Web.' .  If one looks at the Japanese name 'Tsumugi Shibori,' it breaks down to “Tsumugi”, a prefecture famous for cloth production, and “shibori” which is basically “tye-dyed”.  All of our plants are grown from cuttings from a superior selection of the seed strain. Again, it makes a great container plant or a good shade landscape specimen.
