Q.Are Fatsia Japonicas Resistant To Verticilium Wilt?

They’re not on the list of plants resistant or susceptible to this disease. I believe i lost a continus a few years ago to the disease and wondered if i put a fatsia where the cotinus was whether it too would be affected. Thanks for your help.

They are resistant, but any plant can contract the disease whether or not it is resistant. This only makes it more difficult for it to get sick. I would have your soil tested before planting anything. If the disease is still concentrated in the area, then you may want to avoid planting anything in that area. If the disease is only barely in the soil, then you might consider planting something, but that will be up to you for risk versus benefit.
