Aucuba japonica, before and after



The canopy has been raised high enough to walk under without stooping. My dad was surprised I could get a canopy out of it at all. It's a slow grower, supposedly, and this must be an old shrub, for it's reached it's maximum height according to the books I've read. I have a suspicion it may be one of the original plantings on the property, which is a very exciting idea. In fact, I may suspect this just because it is exciting to think so. I have no corroborating evidence.
