    The css property
    only applies to Region (and subclasses), not to Rectangles.

    Rectangle has -fx-arc-width and -fx-arc-height, but these only take a single value, not a series of values for each corner.

    So to do something like this, you have to use a Region to create your rectangle.

    The following works for me, but feels like a bit of a hack:
    import javafx.application.Application;
    import javafx.scene.Scene;
    import javafx.scene.layout.Pane;
    import javafx.scene.layout.Region;
    import javafx.stage.Stage;
    public class RectangleTest extends Application {
      public void start(Stage primaryStage) {
        Pane root = new Pane();
        final Region rectangle = createRectangle(50, 50, 300, 200);
        rectangle.setStyle("-fx-background-color: green; -fx-background-radius: 15 0 0 0");
        Scene scene = new Scene(root, 400, 400);
      private Region createRectangle(double x, double y, double width, double height) {
        final Region rectangle = new Region();
        rectangle.setPrefSize(width, height);
        rectangle.setMinSize(width, height);
        rectangle.setMaxSize(width, height);
        return rectangle;
      public static void main(String[] args) {
