Aucuba japonica ‘crotonifolia’
A versatile evergreen shrub for almost any setting. Will grow happily in shade though its gold-blotched and finely-speckled leaves colour best in full sun. It thrives in most soils, including dry ground near hedges and trees. Can be pruned into formal shapes and hedges. Responds well to a light prune in spring to preserve it shape.
