Not many plants flower in the fall so it's fun to run into the odd outlier. One of them is Fatsia japonica. I "discovered" this specimen during routine maintenance work. I knew it was there but this was the first time I'd seen it flowering. And it made my day on an otherwise routine fall day.
Fatsias have big, interesting leaves and they're happy in shady corners. If you get one, make sure you give it plenty of space.
