Planted a row of these under a front picture window in light shade. This variety is showier than most other aucubas, having large yellow areas in the leaves instead of small spots. They are great for brightening up a rather dark area, and after 5 years they are still doing very well. They get slow-drip irrigated once every three days, so I can't comment on drought-hardiness. No pest or other problems. A little hard to find in this area; I got lucky.
