Orange Twist Brush Cherry

Eugenia myrtifolia 'Orange Twist'

Glossy orange foliage on upright, twisting branches creates a unique and colorful year-round display. White, pincushion-like blooms appear in spring, followed by purplish berries. The leaves transform to green with age, as new growth continues to emerge. Great hedging and screening shrub. Use in containers as an artful specimen or clipped topiary.
