Aucuba japonica 'Fujikawa' is certainly one of the most unique aucuba selections we've ever seen. The 8" long x 1" wide, narrow, pointed, glossy green leaves form a fine-textured specimen that looks like something you'd see in the tropics...quite un-aucuba-esque. Aucuba 'Fujikawa' forms a 4' tall x 4' wide evergreen specimen in 5-7 years. With a male aucuba nearby, the female Aucuba 'Fujikawa' will reward you with red M&M size fruit in the winter.
