Eugenia Topiary as gift

titchou(35209)January 25, 2005

I received a Eugenia topiary as a gift. What do I do with it? I live in Birmingham, AL. From what I find on the web, it looks like it should be an indoor plant. Is this correct? Need watering, feeding, location, etc ideas!

Definitely a zone 10 or 11 plant. There are several types of eugenia, and possibly you have a surinam cherry. Honestly, I don't know how to take care of this plant. (and my family has such a plant in our backyard back in Asia) It's tropical, loves full sun, loves to be well watered but I just don't know about winter care. You need to go to the tropical forum for advise or check with a tropical plant supplier to see how to treat this plant while it's indoors. I suspect it will need some help with lighting during the winter period.

I wonder if this plant is actually 'Brush Cherry' -Eugenia paniculata. A very pretty small leave variety.
