Fatsia responds well to pruning - leggy plants can be chopped back to keep them bushy, or bottom leaves can be removed to create a little tree. It can also be grown as a hedge.
Fatsia is easy to grow, preferring a fertile soil in shade. It will tolerate dry shade once established, and is a good choice for a problem area. Smaller paler leaves are produced in sun.
