Little Angel Aucuba. We were visiting a nursery in Japan some years ago looking for several new plants and darkness suddenly overtook us at 4:30 p.m. In November in eastern Japan the sun sets around 4:15 p.m. I stumbled upon this small Aucuba which was about 18" high and 3' across and it was covered in large red berries. I was able to get a few cuttings and now we have it available. Having no cultivar name, one of my propagators named it 'Little Angel.' But remember, Aucubas are dioecious, having separate male and female plants, so if one doesn't have a male to pollinate the female, then there will be no berries. We sell a male cultivar 'Mr. Goldstrike' which is a great variegated form of standard size and it flowers heavily and is an excellent pollinator. Remember that all Aucubas need shade to prevent the leaves from burning.
