Aucuba japonica 'Arashiyama' is a true collector plant. This Japanese selection of their native aucuba is painfully slow-growing, reaching only 2' tall after five years.  The wavy, glossy green leaves are flecked with a misty white central pattern that crystalizes into an irregular white border near the leaf edges.
