Fatshedera lizei 'Annemieke' (Golden-Variegated Fatshedera) - An Evergreen upight-growing vining shrub with bold yellow variegated foliage. This is a variegated form of the unique bigeneric hybrid between Japanese Aralia (Fatsia japonica) and English Ivy (Hedera helix var. hibernica). The original hybrid, found in a garden in Nantes, France in 1910 has green ivy like leaves that are usually 5 lobed and much larger than English Ivy but with the woody upright growth more typical with the Aralia. This plant can produce umbels of white sterile flowers but this is a rare occurrence. This beautiful selection has splashes of yellow in the foliage. Full sun to deep shade - foliage is best in light shade. Irrigate regularly to only occasionally. It is evergreen to around 20 F and stem hardy down to around 15 F (though some report it recovering from stems frozen at 0 F. Can be trained upright as a shrub or even small tree, espaliered against a wall or trained as a large vine, though it lacks the aerial roots that ivy uses to fasten itself to a surface. We received this plant as 'Annemieke' but also note the spelling as 'Anna Mikkels'. Other synonyms for this plant are 'Lemon and Lime', 'Maculata' and 'Aureovariegata'.  Information displayed on this page about  Fatshedera lizei 'Annemieke' is based on the research conducted about it in our library and from reliable online resources. We also note those observations we have made of this plant as it grows in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how crops have performed in our nursery field. We will incorporate comments we receive from others, and welcome to hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
