Planting your favourite plants is awesome but always consider how much space you have for the plant's mature size. Take a look at the picture below of Fatsia japonica plants.
I like the plants because they flower in winter but look at the location between a garage and home access. Fatsia grow to 1-3m (9') so eventually this will be a headache requiring maintenance pruning.
Before planting, consider the mature size of your plants to make sure you have enough room for them in your garden.
