Spotted Laurel 'Rozannie' Overview

Aucuba japonica 'Rozannie' is a small, evergreen shrub species in the Garryaceae family. This cultivar has a compact growth habit and typically doesn't exceed 1 in height and spread. It is termed dioecious and thus produces separate male and female flowers on individual plants. Leaves are oppositely arranged, broadly toothed along the edges, dark green and glossy in appearance. Small, non-showy purple-red flowers are produced, followed by bright red ornamental berries in female specimens if pollination occurs. This cultivar grows well in most soils, with the exception of waterlogged soils, allow to dry out between waterings to reduce chances of root rot.
