 Picturata Aucuba is a shade loving variegated evergreen shrub with leaves that host a yellow center and have the signature yellow speckles coating the green margins.  The tiny maroon flowers bloom in early spring, while on female plants the bright red berries ripen in fall and last until spring.  Prefers rich, moist and well-drained soils.  Very good drought tolerance once established.  Deer resistant. Picturata has a tendency to revert to solid green, so any solid green stems should be removed.

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.
