japonica is a perennial dioecious shrub native to East Asia (China and Japan) which is widely used as ornamental in warm zones of Western Europe and the U SA.
, eleagnus and butcher's broom are extremely robust and make solid hedges, and variegated holly can also be used.
Introduce shrubs which offer all-year foliage, such as the spotted Aucuba

The strategy is based on expression of full-length or modified vital replicase genes and has been used in cowpea mosaic virus (23), potato aucuba
mosaic virus (11), cucumber mosaic virus (1), pepper mild mottle virus (28), and PVY (2).
Evergreens such as aucuba
