Fresh Alternatives: Speckled Japanese Aralia

(Fatsia japonica 'Spider's Web')

Switch out cherry laurel for an aralia with showy variegated leaves that set it a cut above most broad-leaved evergreens. Though it's supposed to need warm winters, this "zone-buster" grows happily in Andrew's Zone 7 woodland garden. Full sun to partial shade; 5 feet tall and wide. Zones 8-10.
