This evergreen decorative shrub provides a nice accent to your yard with leaves that change to a pretty maroon color in the Fall. Due to its beautiful maroon color, it is commonly mistaken as a "Red Tip". Please note: the Cleyera does grow to a large size so, if a smaller shrub size is desired, plants must be pruned frequently.
