Eugenia, Topiary Growing Instructions

If you have a bright spot, eugenia topiaries are relatively easy to grow indoors. The biggest thing to keep in mind is that topiary eugenia needs plenty of light so place them near a south-facing window or patio door. Water to keep the soil slightly moist, but not saturated and never let the soil dry out completely. Eugenia wilts dramatically when dry and the leaves quickly turn crunchy. Outdoor, set topiary eugenia in a sunny location so all parts of the plant receive direct sunlight. Topiary eugenia is relatively slow growing so additional trimming to keep it in shape is only required occasionally. You can prune at any time.

Topiary eugenia is not intended for human or animal consumption.
