AUCUBA japonica 'Crotonifolia'
Crotonifolia Japanese aucuba is an evergreen shrub with glossy, leathery green leaves mottled with yellow spots; it is a female flowering plant and will not form the typical red fruits unless a male plant is nearby.
Aucuba tolerates most well drained soil and prefers partial shade locations protected from hot afternoon sun and winter winds. Aucuba is excellent for hedges or massing and may be grown as a large houseplant.
