Aucuba japonica 'Ogon-no-tsuki' is one of the rarest and most spectacular aucuba cultivars. The dark green leaves with wide creamy gold centers makes a screamingly brilliant garden feature in the light shade woodland. Due to the large amount of white in the leaf, which reduces the photosynthetic surface, Aucuba 'Ogon-no-tsuki' is incredibly slow growing. Our 10-year-old plant is only 3' tall x 2' wide.
