Aucuba are evergreen shrubs cultivated for their bold alternate leaves. They bear large red fruits and are extremely hardy. Aucubas can tolerate full shade so they are ideal for planting underneath a tree. They will also tolerate dry soils and salty winds. They are best used as a hedging plant or as a specimen shrub. With the exception of a water logged soil, Aucubas can be grown in just about any conditions. They should be watered freely and fed a monthly fertiliser. Aucubas can be pruned to remove any out of place branches and if used as a hedging plant should be cut back well in Spring.
