I have the yellow one and I was just thinking today how lovely it is going to be during the dark months. This is lovely too.

Karen thanks, I am very fond of shrubs, especially evergreen ones and hardy if possible!!

Yes, me too....and at this time of year they really start coming to the fore don't they.

They are useful, I find them slow growing here though.

I love these. They do look good all year round. They seem to strike easily from cuttings.

They do Homebird, I agree. Forgot to take cuttings this summer though. Tut

Karen this is the yellow one, because it is in shade it is not so bright.
HB must try and get a cutting from this one.....

Dottydaisy2:

That's an excellent specimen!!! The ones here always burn in the heat of summer, even in the shade.

The only plant I have which looks similar (growing outside) is Codiaeum aucubaefolia (Codiaeum variegatum 'Gold Dust').

Here's a pic...you can see the similarity:

Will have a look,the Aucuba is a very useful shrub, tough and leathery, can cope with most conditions.
