Aucuba japonica 'Mr Goldstrike' (spotted laurel) is an excellent plant for brightening shady or dark corners. It bears striking glossy green leaves splashed with bold golden markings that are a boon for winter flower arrangements. A male variety that will pollinate female varieties, thereby ensuring production of their cheery red berries.

Medium-sized to large hardy evergreen shrub. Thrives in most soils in partial or deep shade. Tolerant of poor dry soil once established but objects to cold winter winds and frost pockets.
