Product Overview

Bronze Beauty Cleyera is a dense evergreen shrub from Southern Living Plants. It gets its name from the bronze-hued new growth that emerges in the spring and after pruning. New growth fades to green, making for a stunning contrast of old and new foliage on the shrub. Topping out at 10 feet tall and 6 feet wide, this shrub makes a perfectly compact privacy screen or tall hedge that requires very little maintenance. Use it along foundations or fences to add height to the back of a garden area or to hide construction elements like air conditioning units or meters. It can take the sun to shade, is pest resistant, drought resistant, and disease resistant, making it a reliable addition to any landscape. This shrub will grow best in a location that receives full to part sun, and that has well-drained slightly acidic soil.
  • Glossy green foliage with bronze new growth, evergreen shrub
  • Upright, dense habit works well for shorter privacy screens and hedges, topping out at 10 feet tall
  • Durable shrub, tolerant of heat. Ps
  • Cold hardy to USDA zone 7-10
  • Plant in well-drained garden soil
  • Does well in full sun to part shade
  • Fertilize in spring with slow-release granular fertilizer
  • Water as needed

Questions & Answers

6Questions8Answers

Will this plant survive in zone 5b?(Maine coast) It lists zone 6 (so close!)

Asked by CJ October 17, 2020
1
Answer

I am sorry but the Bronze Beauty Cleyera is only suited from hardiness zones 7-10.

Is this deer-resistant or invasive in zone 8?

Asked by mb September 29, 2020
1
Answer

They Cleyera is NOT an invasive plant. It is a beautiful plant if you are needing to cover a large area, need some privacy or sound proofing from a busy road. When deer’s natural resources are not available, they will usually eat anything green they can find, including Cleyeras. We can say they will avoid bushes with colorful flowers but that is just wishful thinking. I can only suggest leaving other food sources for the deer or making your plants inaccessible for deer if this is a concern in your area.

What is the current size of the plant? And typical growth rate?

Asked by Chad April 19, 2020
1
Answer

We planted 4 Bronze Beauty Cleyera plants almost four years ago. The are in shade 75% of the time & are in clay soil, so they are probably growing slower than normal. They are all 3' w x 3' h and have beautiful foliage.

My shrub is dieing. What can I do to revive it?

Asked by Srl June 14, 2018
1
Answer

Where did you plant it and in what soil? Also...the entire plant is showing signs of dying-or just spots? Image would be helpful, too.

info states this is 7 feet tall x 5 feet wide, a medium size hedge AND a small hedge? Can it be trimmed to keep it small

Asked by CS July 19, 2017
3
Answers

If you keep trimming any bush it will stay that height - but it will branch outward, and you will have the option to shape that as well. This is a BEAUTIFUL shrub. I ordered two for our condo property...love them so much I'm ordering two more today. They have the perfect hardiness for the area (Florida)

Is this a fast griwing shrub

Asked by Rita May 20, 2016
1
Answer

Yes this is a medium to fast growing shrub growing up to 3-7 inches per year depending on growing conditions
