commonly called spotted laurel, or gold dust laurel is a rounded, shade-loving, evergreen shrub. It typically grows to 6-10' (infrequently to 15') tall, unless pruned shorter. Native to moist woodland areas, thickets, valleys and along streams from Japan and China to the Himalayas. glossy, elliptic to narrow, rich green leaves with yellow spots and splotches (each to 8” long) have coarse marginal teeth on the upper half of each leaf. Tiny purple-maroon flowers with creamy white anthers bloom in early spring (March-April). flowers are followed by one-seeded, berry-like drupes (to 1/2”) which ripen to red in fall. Fruits often persist on the plant until spring. prefers partial to full shade. foliage burn in full sun locations can occur
