Additional information

Weight 1 lbs

Japanese aucuba (Aucuba japonica) is an evergreen shrub that grows 6 to 10 feet (2-3 m.) tall with colorful, green and yellow-gold leaves as much as 8 inches (20 cm.) long. The flowers aren’t particularly ornamental, but attractive, bright red berries replace them in the fall if a male plant grows nearby. The flowers and fruit often hide behind the foliage. Aucuba also makes nice container shrubs or houseplants.

 

Deeper shade means brighter leaf color. Plants tolerate partial sun, but leaves turn black if they get too much sun. Mild temperatures. Japanese aucuba plants survive winters in USDA plant hardiness zones 7a soil through 10. Well-drained soil. The ideal soil is moist with a high organic content, but the plants tolerate most any soil, including heavy clay, as long as it is well drained.

Aucuba shrubs also have moderate drought tolerance, but they grow best in moist soil. Water often enough to keep the soil moderately moist using cold water.
