Aucuba Goodie Junior

“Junior” – because this is just a small rooted cutting from a green Aucuba plant. “Goodie” – because, well, you be the judge. Maybe because this plant is diminutive the flowers are so conspicuous. Aucuba Japonica probably is listed as having “inconspicuous” flowers in the spring, but striking red berries in winter. Here in central Virginia Aucuba plants of all varieties are usually very large, almost hedge-like in mass plantings. I’m betting it’s rare that owners get close enough to appreciate the delicate and intricate bracts.
