10″ Eugenia ‘2 Ball Topiary’
Eugenia is a glossy leaved shrub or tree. It makes an excellent potted plant or you can prune it severely and use it as a low border in formal garden settings. An interesting Eugenia plant fact is its relation to the Myrtle family.
Eugenia requires well-drained soil. Choose a large pot with plenty of holes in the bottom. Use a good potting soil with generous handfuls of sand added to increase porosity.
A key aspect of Eugenia care is its need for water. While it can survive brief periods of drought, this plant does best when kept moist but not soggy. Situate the container in full sun when growing Eugenia indoors.
