(aka: Aucuba 'Sulphurea Marginata') Aucuba japonica 'Limbata' isn't a new plant, since it was first introduced in 1864, but it has remained quite rare and expensive since it grows and propagates so slowly. This beautiful 4' tall x 4' wide aucuba has dark, evergreen, deeply toothed leaves, each surrounded by a wide yellow border that brightens to white as the leaves age. Aucuba 'Limbata' is a female clone, so if you have a male nearby, your plant will be laden with lovely red fruit.
