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 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.
