Description Plant Care Q & A Suggested Sundries Alternatives Description

Aucuba japonica longifolia is a versitile and reliable and hardy evergreen shrub.  As with all Aucubas, it boasts beautiful glossy green leaves and is tolerant of shade making it a useful addition to the back of a border or particularly difficult shady areas of the garden. 

As the name suggests, Aucuba japonica longifolia boasts long, narrow and glossy leaves in a rich green hue. It's unfussy about soil providing it's not waterlogged and once established you can expect beautiful vivid red berries providing there is a male plant nearby for pollination.
