Aucuba japonica 'Serratifolia'

Japanese Saw Toothed Aucuba, Japanese Aucuba

One of the few landscape shrubs that thrive without direct light, Aucuba enlivens shady areas near buildings with its shiny, dark green leaves. Under dense trees, its roots compete successfully with other roots. It also tolerates pollution and performs well in containers. Several variegated cultivars add a touch of brightness to dark locations. If planted near a male plant, female plants produce scarlet berries from fall into spring, though they are often hidden by the leaves. Flowers are brown and insignificant. Water during growing/blooming season, but do not make soil too soggy. Prune in late winter or spring to restrict growth.

Its clusters of 4 to 8-inch long, sharply toothed, leathery leaves are brightened by small purplish flowers in spring.
