A southern favorite here! Cleyera japonica is a broadleaf evergreen shrub. They make excellent borders, hedges, screens or foundation plants. Its glossy new growth emerges with an attractive bronze! Later it matures into a deep lustrous green.
In spring, white bell-shaped flowers open and emit a pleasant aroma! Later they fade into dark ornamental berries. Wonderful evergreen choice with endless possibilities!
