Ooops! We previously offered this male clone of the lovely-shaped Aucuba japonica var. borealis, but when it flowered, we discovered it had undergone a previously undisclosed sex change operation and was not a male. We immediately switched its name to Aucuba japonica 'Bored Female'. Aucuba 'Bored Female' makes an elegant 4' tall x 4' wide specimen, clothed in very shiny, black-green leaves. Aucuba japonica var. borealis is the most cold hardy of the Aucubas, hailing from northern Hokkaido, and Sea of Japan side of Honshu, so this would be a good one to try if you live north of Zone 7.
