This decorative shrub provides a nice accent to your yard, with evergreen 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.
