Aucuba japonica 'Tatsumaki' is the Quasimodo of the aucuba world. This odd Japanese selection is adorned with 6" long x 2" wide glossy, dark green leaves that are slightly twisted and mildly contorted. We have found the male-flowered Aucuba 'Tatsumaki' to be among the slower growing aucubas we've trialed, forming a 3' tall specimen in seven years.
