Aucuba japonica
Japanese Aucuba

This image shows the purple female inflorescences of Japanese Aucuba sited in the opposite leaf axils of this showy evergreen shrub. The male flowers (not shown) occur on separate plants (which are therefore fruitless) as larger, terminal, purple panicles. Flowering occurs very early in Spring, often with the previous season's fruits still present on the female plants.
