My fatsia japonica is definitely dying. It's about 15 years old and absolutely huge. Do they have a natural lifetime limit?




Most plants do I am afraid. Perhaps cut this down to about a foot high and see if it regenerates. You have nothing to loose. Make sure it has plenty of water as it has been quite dry lately.
welcome to GoY too.

My large Fatsia went like this a couple of years ago, really hot, dry, summer. I cut back to around three feet and she came back again.
