Aucuba Japonica Variegata was introduced into England in 1783 as a plant for a heated greenhouse of the great estates. It became widely cultivated as the "gold plant" by 19th-century gardeners and indeed, many refer to this variety as "Gold Dust." A perfectly carefree shrub it does not require feeding and is happy in any kind of soil as long as it drains well. It can reach 6' high by 4' wide and given time will begin to self propagate as it is dioecious. Sometimes it will produce red berries called "drupes." You will receive a large plant at least 8" tall with thick fleshy roots in a nursery pot and organic soil. Available now but only until the heat of summer ensues.
Please note: If for any reason you believe your plant arrives in distressed condition, or damaged, please take a picture and send to me immediately. I will either send you another plant or refund, but I can do nothing if you do not notify me of the plant's condition with photo on arrival. Also, some of the pictures may be of mature or blooming plants. You are getting what is represented in the description, not a mature blooming plant.
