A popular hedging plant in New Zealand for the last twenty years this evergreen tree is fast growing and hardy. “Redeye” is a selection that was identified over 10 years ago with consistent leaf form and colour. New growth is a brilliant red maturing to a deep green. The advantage of this selection is that unlike the seedling grown Eugenia, you get a hedge that has no variation. This plant has a multitude of uses and is versatile in all areas of the garden for shape, shelter, privacy screening and colour. It responds well to trimming and with regular clipping will form a manicured hedge or specimen.
