Gold Dust Aucuba Shrubs for Sale Online

Gold Dust Aucuba Shrubs produce large, dark green leaves that look as though they've been speckled with yellow paint, adding a tropical feel to any garden. Gold Dust 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 very drought tolerant when established, making it suitable for growing under large 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 interesting privacy hedge in a shady location where not many choices are available.

Gold Dust Aucuba is able to 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, make sure to plant both male Mr. Goldstrike.
