Gold-dust plant

Aucuba

Gold dust plant's gold-splashed leaves light up shady places and create dramatic tropical effects even where winters are cold. A great filler for winter holiday bouquets, glossy green gold dust plant foliage ranges from medium to narrow in width. Some varieties are female or male only, others such as 'Crotonfolia' may be either. If you want the red berries for striking winter color, plant female varieties near a male pollinator plant.
