We have a thing for aucubas that gotten well out of hand. Of course, you could say the same for many plant groups. I was photographing in the garden this week and snapped this photo of a male aucuba in flower. Most people who grow aucubas often opt for females, since they produce nice red fruit, but there will usually be no fruit without a male nearby. While I love aucuba fruit, I think the males are the most stunning. How many shrubs do you know that flower in the winter time? We’d love to offer more male clones if anyone would purchase them.
