Small genus with only 3 described evergreen species. These are East Asian, shrubs or small trees grown for their growth habit, fruits, leathery foliage and interesting flowers. Glossy leaves, formed mostly at the tips of branches, are divided palmately to create between 7–10 lobes. These are arranged like an open palm, where the lobes are fingers. Flowers are produced in clusters, coloured white or green-white, spherical in overall appearance and followed by small black berries. The most commonly cultivated species is F. japonica, which is ideal for shaded and sheltered areas.
Take greenwood cuttings in summer.
