While the Bigfoot Cleyera is the largest Cleyera in the Southern Living Plant Collection, The Bronze Beauty is the most petite. Growing to heights of 8-10 ft and 5-6 ft wide, this Cleyera makes for a fantastic hedge screen. Young foliage on the Bronze Beauty starts off as a light bronze green and develops into a darker metallic-sheen emerald green. At the beginning of fall, the Bronze Beauty transforms its formerly green leaves into a breathtaking scarlet-bronze that changes the landscape entirely. This plant is receptive to pruning or shearing, and will hold a shape nicely. Plant the Bronze Beauty Cleyera in part shade to full sun and slightly acidic soil for best performance.
Spacing Your Bronze Beauty
For a seamless planting, plant your Bronze Beauty 4 feet apart. Space them 7+ feet for gaps between plants.
