This shade lover reaches a mature height of 7 feet and a width of 6 feet.

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.
