I just moved into a new house. This plant is out front and seems to be losing a leaf a day… I’m not sure what it is so I don’t know if that’s normal or if it needs something. Please let me know what you think.
your plant is called Japanese Aralia, Fatsia japonica. It is a very nice landscape plant. I think that yours may be getting too much sun, causing some stress. Perhaps some additional watering might help a bit. They usually like a little shade. Otherwise, the plant looks fine.
