Description
Despite its exotic looks, this hardy evergreen shrub will live in the most inhospitable of conditions! Positively thriving in shade, the Spotted Laurel will even tolerate difficult dry soils and coastal conditions where many plants would fail. Aucuba japonica 'Crotonifolia' sports large, glossy green leaves that are flecked with gold. Small, inconspicuous red-brown flowers are carried from April to May, to be followed by bright red berries in autumn. A superb evergreen specimen shrub for borders, screens and hedging, and perfect for brightening those difficult shaded areas of the garden. Height and spread: 3m (10').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Aucuba plants are extremely resilient, thriving in any soil except those that become waterlogged. Spotted Laurel will cope in a sunny position but prefers dappled or full shade.
More Info
Aucuba plants require little maintenance except for a light trim in early spring to maintain a healthy well shaped plant or hedge. However they will respond well to heavy pruning in spring if renovation is required.
