Aucuba Mr. Goldstrike Shrubs for Sale Online

The large, dark green leaves look as though they've been speckled with yellow paint, adding a tropical feel to any garden. Mr. Goldstrike Aucuba is exceptionally easy to grow in locations that provide well-draining soil and shade or morning sun with afternoon shade.

The hot afternoon sun will scorch the leaves, causing them to turn black in color. It is drought tolerant when established, making it suitable for growing under more giant shade trees where not many other plants will grow.

No pruning is required though stray or broken branches can be removed any time of year. Creates an exciting privacy hedge in a shady location where few choices are available.

Mr. Goldstrike Aucuba can withstand at least some salt in the air and soil so you could use this in a location near the ocean. It will also do well in urban areas where the roads are sometimes salted to keep away snow. Air pollution is also tolerated. If you want at least some of your shrubs to have beautiful red fruits, this male cultivar, one male plant, will pollinate up to 6 females.
