Aucuba Japonica cuttings rooted, next step?

opal52(z7b GA)August 13, 2005

I am relatively new to this, so at the risk of sounding dumb, here goes.

I have several stem cuttings of Aucuba that have rooted and are ready to go into a larger container. How many rooted cuttings do I put in each container. My hope is to have a few pots of nicely shaped shrubs to plant early next spring.

I have wanted to ask this question for some time, but haven't had the nerve. Thanks for advice.

I am assuming you intend to plant it in ground. Will it thrive in your climate zone?

I would personally prefer a single specimen in each pot since I find it to be much easier
to manage and maintain. Several cuttings planted together may instantly look good but
can be hard to control.

Just my own personal opinion.

Aucuba does fine here in my zone which is a cold 7. I've had one of over 25 years in my garden. I started it from a single cutting way back then.

Aucuba is supposed to thrive here in hot, humid zone 7 as long as it is kept out of direct sun.

George, I hope the little ones I have started have as much success as yours. I like the way Aucuba brightens up shade gardens.

Thanks very much to you both for your advice.
