Special Attributes

A handsome, tough and easy-to-grow evergreen shrub that will bring outstanding bold texture to the shade or woodland garden, the Sawtoothed Japanese Aucuba sports shiny, very dark green, leaves that are toothed around the edges and much longer than are typical on other Aucuba varieties. The one-of-a-kind bold foliage contrasts wonderfully with blue, golden and variegated hosta lilies, perennial ferns and just about any other shade-loving plants. Those of you who live and garden above USDA Zone 7a will be happy to know that Sawtoothed Aucuba can be grown year-round indoors as a houseplant!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 5 to 7 feet tall and wide and thriving in dense shade to part shade, the Sawtoothed Aucuba is ideal for use as an accent, in groupings, or as a natural hedge in home foundation plantings, under the canopies of large shade trees, and in other shady areas. A fine addition to the shade or woodland gardens, tropical look garden, perennial shade gardens, rock gardens, and Xeriscape gardens (low water needs). You can also grow this flashy beauty year-round indoors as a houseplant!

Suggested Spacing:  4 feet apart for solid hedges; 10 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Aucuba are very easy to grow and low maintenance plants tolerant of most any moist to somewhat dry well-drained soil and are exceptionally drought tolerant when established. Aucuba thrive in the shadiest of spots, even under the canopies of large trees and under tall decks where grass and many other plants are difficult if not impossible to grow, but will also tolerate morning sun. Direct afternoon sun can scorch or discolor the leaves. Exceptionally low maintenance though plants can be pruned for shaping purposes or to control size.
