Eugenia myrtifolia 'Globulus'
|Description||This attractive, compact evergreen develops vivid bronze-red new foliage throughout the year. Sporadic tiny, creamy white flowers are followed by edible purple-tinged fruit. In its natural form, it makes a tidy hedge or low border. Trained topiary forms are perfect for border accents or gracing an entry way in containers.|

|Mature Size||Slow growing to 4 to 6 ft. tall and wide.|

|Design Ideas||In tropical and sub-tropical climates, the bronze sheen of these shrubs is most welcome. They are generally used as a medium hedge between front yards or along fence and property lines. Makes a good partition inside a landscape to separate play or sports areas. May be allowed to grow into a natural screen.|
|Companion Plants||Lantana (Lantana); African Daisy (Osteospermum); New Zealand Flax (Phormium); Loropetalum (Loropetalum); Hopseed Bush (Dodonaea)|
|Care||Prefers slightly acidic, well-drained soils, rich in organic matter. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Prune only as needed to maintain desired shape; as a topiary, prune regularly to maintain form.|
