Albeit a variegated cultivar, it being in bloom is a first for me. How days growth is involved in getting it to this stage has strangely gone unbelievably unnoticed by me until to day. I walk past this plant anything up to 20 times a day, without intentionally looking directly at it, as was the case today. However something in my subconscious mind registered an anomaly with the Fatsia, a sort of whoa look at the Fatsia. I did, and now your seeing what my conscious mind had some how overlooked for x days, mind you I am easily side tracked in my garden from natures most times hidden wonders. Oh yeah!
The reason for the two leaf shots is the obvious difference in their form. Plus the one on the left is attached to the flower stem, hardly a sepal, they can be seen on the multi headed flower bud, whereas the one on the right is off the main stem, showing very slight variegation, but with five points, which is also out of character with the image off Wikipedia. Beggars the question are they two forms of the genus Fatsia, or two different species? Any budding, (sorry, couldn’t resist), botanists out there, would love some feedback on this one, please.
