Aucuba Gold King is also known as a Spotted Laurel, it really brightens up a shady area with it’s spotted yellow and green leaves. The leaves are glossy and while they do flower, these are insignifigant, with male and female plants. The female will produce red berries but only if a male plant is nearby.
Aucuba will grow in almost any soil, and in sunshine as well as deep shade. If you really want to prune the Aucuba, then it is best to do this during May.
