Aucuba japonica 'Golden King'
An evergreen shrub with rather large leathery leaves which in this clone are very heavily splashed with yellow. We obtained this male clone a few years ago from Dr. Michael Dirr who was then working with and evaluating a number of Aucuba varieties which he had obtained from various places here and abroad. A great shrub to brighten up dark shady corners of the garden where the soil is moist but well-drained. Aucuba japonica is native to Japan
