'Hosoba Hoshifu' is a female cultivar of Aucuba japonica, also known as Japanese laurel, a showy evergreen shrub that grows well in shady locations to 4-6' tall and slightly more narrow, producing long, shiny green leaves speckled liberally with bright yellow spots. As a female cultivar, 'Hosoba Hoshifu' will also produce showy red berries when planted near a male plant.

As a shady, ornamental evergreen that prefers things on the drier side, Aucuba japonica 'Hosoba Hoshifu' makes an excellent addition to shaded beds, woodland gardens, or as a foundation plant. Aucuba japonica is also tolerant of salt and drought, adding the benefit of hardiness to its striking foliage, and making it a very versatile landscape addition.
