Aucuba japonica

All aucubas grow best in shade or partial shade and where they get protection from desiccating winds or high heat. The deeper the shade, the brighter the coloration. Too much sun can blacken their foliage.

Avoid planting them among deciduous trees where they will be exposed to morning sun in winter months. Moderately drought tolerant, even in clay soil, but grow best in moderately moist conditions.      Poisonous if eaten.
