A BIT MORE...

The showy golden flecks on the leaves of Aucuba japonica ‘Variegata’ look almost like a secret artist spattered them with luminescent ink when no one was looking. Often, Aucuba is sold in tiny pots when people buy it as a houseplant, and never really know how grand it could be, given a little space and care. Plant in shady spots that get regular water, and you won’t be disappointed with this pretty hedge.
