Picturata Aucuba Japonica

$39.99

Aucuba is shade loving evergreen plant that displays wonderful foliage color all year long. Although they can tolerate some sun, their foliage color shows best when in a mostly shady area. Picturata is different than the Gold Dust Aucuba that is often seen in our area in that it has larger and bolder amounts of yellow centers with green margins spotted with gold. It reaches 4 to 6 feet after a few years, eventually growing even taller. Bring brightness to your darkest beds with this great evergreen, which thrives where nothing else will. Hardiness zones are 6-10 but try to keep this shrub out of the areas that are known to be windy. Remember, full to partial shade works best with this shrub as well as slightly acidic, well drained soil.
