Mr. Goldstrike Aucuba
Aucuba japonica 'Mr. Goldstrike'
Mr. Goldstrike has large glossy dark green leaves that are splashed with gold markings -- more so than other variegated acubas. Excellent accent plant; sturdy upright stems can measure 4-6' high and slightly wider.
Grows best in lightly shaded or dappled areas, but in heavy shade it can loose some of its namesake variegation. Poisonous if eaten.
