This slow-growing, evergreen shrub has yellow speckled foliage or bright green glossy foliage depending on the cultivar. It keeps its leaves year-round, providing color and texture when other plants go dormant for winter. Gold dust plant is grown for its berries as well as its leaves. Female plants produce bright red berries in fall when a male pollinator is nearby.

Gold dust plant thrives in full shade. It will tolerate a few hours of morning sunlight, but its leaves will scorch when exposed to extended periods of full sun. A woodland plant, it thrives in rich, deep, moist soil that is well drained. Prior to planting, enrich the soil with a well-decomposed compost
