This Japanese female selection of the evergreen Aucuba japonica has some of the brightest leaf splashing of any of the clones we have grown. Aucuba 'Hosoba Hoshifu' means "narrow-leaved star-variegated." In the garden, our 5-year-old plants are 4' tall x 4' wide on the way to 6' in height, with a similar spread. The plants are adorned with narrow, 7" long x 1.5" wide, dark green leaves, heavily speckled with yellow dots. In winter, the plants are adorned with large clusters of bright red fruit the size of large peanuts...provided you have a male clone nearby.
