AUCUBA japonica f. longifolia 'Salicifolia'
Japanese Aucuba, Japanese Laurel, Willowleaf Japanese Laurel
Japanese aucuba is a medium-sized evergreen shrub with glossy, leathery, dark green foliage. The female cultivar 'Salicifolia' has narrow, serrated leaves, borne on sea-green stems. This female plant produces abundant bright red fruit in fall and winter, preceded in spring by small purple flowers.
Aucubas tolerate most well drained soils and prefer partially shaded locations with shelter from hot afternoon sun and winter winds. They are excellent for hedges or massing and may be grown as large house plants.
