|Hi: I just purchased your Aucuba Japonica Serratifolia. The plant has red berries on it. The Western Garden book says this is a female plant and if I want to have berries I will need to purchase a male plant. Is this correct? If yes, which male plant should I purchase?
Thank you for your help.
|It's true, a female Aucuba will produce more berries if there's a male in the vicinity. There may already be a male planted in your neighborhood. If not, Aucuba ?Crassifolia? is a male form with large, dark green leaves. It should be readily available at your local garden center. Best wishes with your garden!
