 General Background:

Brush Cherry is an evergreen tree or shrub, some of which have been reclassified to the genus Syzygium. The dark green ovate leaves are formed in pairs and are firm and glossy.

In spring, the Brush Cherry - Eugenia – may bear small white flowers followed by red fruit only some of which are edible. The dried buds of the Eugenia aromatica (Syzygium aromaticum) become fragrant “herb” cloves.

Brush Cherry do best outdoors. They grow best in high light and thrive in sunny, warm locations. The Brush Cherry can tolerate full sun but partial shade is recommended in the hottest areas. Use a humidity tray to keep moisture levels up.

Although some people leave their Brush Cherry outside during the winter, it should never be allowed in temperatures below 30º F. Do not position near a heat source or in drafts. It does not like a lot of variation in temperature.
