Also known as Japanese laurel, Aucuba japonica 'Rozannie' features lance-shaped glossy green leaves. This is a versatile plant that looks great in all types of gardens. Flowers emerge at 3-4years - small inconspicuous purple blooms, followed by red berries.
Able to tolerate shade but prefers a dappled light, does not respond well to being in a full sun position as foliage will burn in the warmer months. Prefers a well-drained but moist fertile soil yet can tolerate dry periods. Prune in spring to promote new growth. Is susceptible to scale.
A great filler in shady areas with impressive foliage when planted en masse. Foliage may be used in floral displays. Plant under Elaeocarpus eumundi for a tropical feel, with Azalea 'White Dragon' or Camellia sasanqua for a Japanese garden, or use in a more traditional formal landscape with Gardenias, Pieris and Helleborus.
