The Aucuba Japoncia Mr. Goldstrike is a perfect choice for bold, golden-yellow splashes on vibrant, glossy green foliage for the shadiest of areas in any landscape. This variegated  evergreen, also known as the Spotted Laurel, reaches a mature height of 4-6 feet and a mature width of 4-5 feet. Providing beautiful winter interest; uses include border, planters and containers, coastal exposure, woodland garden, house plant, specimen, screen, background, window boxes, accent, and mass plantings.

Joseph's Take

Aucuba is another plant that I remember growing up at my grandmothers house. The most useful aspect I've noticed with Aucuba is that it can survive and thrive in the most shady environment, for example, under a deck. The newer yellow Aucuba's are nice to mix with the older greener ones.
