Ketaki Godbole Randiwe added this to 8 Best Shade-Loving Plants for Gardens That Get Less Sunshine27 January 2018

1. Paperplant (Fatsia japonica)Paperplant shrubs have a useful role to play in the landscape. They give a very tropical feel, they love shade and are pretty tolerant to cold temperatures. This is a good (and rare) combination to find among plants. When planted under tree canopies, in shadowy corners and in shaded side yards, the paperplant quickly fills the spaces in with its luxurious glossy foliage.Ideal climate types: TropicalBest for: Excellent choice for that near-sunless corner in a typical urban or suburban garden.

7. Paperplant (Fatsia japonica) Showy paperplant shrubs have a useful niche in the landscape: They’re tropical-looking, fairly cold-tolerant and shade-loving, which can be a difficult combination to find. Planted under tree canopies, in shadowy corners and in shaded side yards, paperplant quickly fills in with its luxurious, glossy foliage. The plants produce white flowers in fall, followed by clusters of black berries, but the foliage is the real star. The tropical-looking palmate leaves can reach up to 16 inches wide. Garden plants typically reach 6 to 8 feet tall and wide, although they can reach 16 feet tall in tropical climates. In cold-winter regions, grow paperplant as a houseplant and set it out on a shaded patio in summer. Where it will grow: Hardy to 15 degrees Fahrenheit, or minus 9.4 degrees Celsius (zones 8 to 11) Water requirement: Regular Light requirement: Partial to full shade
