Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
AUCUBA japonica f. longifolia
Japanese aucuba is an evergreen shrub with glossy, leathery, dark green foliage. The form longifolia has narrow, bright green, lanceolate leaves. This female plant bears 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. Aucubas are excellent for hedges or massing and may be grown as large house plants.
