One of the easiest of all evergreen shrubs to grow and keep so favoured by landscapers and parkkeepers , yet Aucubas or Japanese Laurels are far from boring. This one has striking shiny yellow spotted deep green leaves with a fine showing of bright red berries in Autumn.
Used mainly as a dense hedge for eyar roudn evergreen interest (with it's classoic yellow spots), tt tolerates drought and most soil types and is . Seems to tolerate pollution well so very good in a town or city gardens. Easy to manage, not too vigorous, and is pretty tough and resilient.
Plant 40cm (16') apart for a dense hedge in 5 years or so.
