Gold Dust Japanese Aucuba

Aucuba japonica 'Variegata' - Gold Dust Japanese Aucuba

Landscape Picture


Japanese Aucuba is native from the Himalayas to Japan. Many forms exist due to the variances in the seedlings. Differences include smaller leaf sizes, elongated leaves, and variegated foliage. Gold Dust Aucuba is one of the most popular variegated forms available today. Leaves are large, leathery, and dark green in color. The name Gold Dust comes from the variegation pattern, it looks as if someone sprinkled gold dust on the leaves, making a striking plant for the landscape. Aucubas have both male and female plants, the males have yellow anthers while the females have red/purple flowers followed by red berries, so if you want berries be sure to get a female! Aucuba japonica 'Variegata' is a great choice for even the shadiest of landscapes because it is extremely shade tolerant.
