Japanese Cleyera

Ternstroemia gymnanthera

Japanese Cleyera is a broadleaf evergreen shrub with high branches and rounded crown.  The new growth emerges bronze and matures to leathery dark green leaves with a paler underside.  Its fragrant downward-facing clusters of white flowers bloom in late spring followed by shiny black fruit. Prefers part sun and moist, well-drained soil.  Drought tolerant when established.  Very similar and often sold as Cleyera japonica.
