The Romeo Cleyera will provide your landscape with color year around. The foliage is deep green with variegated, golden margins in the spring and summer. Come fall, it transforms to a variegated rose colored and lasts through winter. This evergreen won’t disappoint wherever you chose to plant it.

The full foliage of the Romeo Cleyera starts deep green with margins that are silky-golden variegation. When fall and winter roll around it changes to rose-colored variegation. It is a very handsome plant that adds sophistication to your landscape. It will reach a height of eight to ten feet and has a spread of five to six feet. It is a wonderful hedge plant or in privacy planting. It does really well when mass planted, or used in border planting. It also makes a great accent plant or in containers as a filler.

Romeo Cleyera Care

The soil for your Romeo Cleyera needs to be well drained and moist. Water needs are average. Plant in full sun to part shade. It is tolerant to all Ph levels and varying soil types. Fertilize early in the spring. Be sure to clear away any dead or fallen foliage as necessary. Pruning is not necessary, however, trimming to shape can be done in early spring before any new growth appears. Water regularly for its first growing season to help develop strong roots. Once established it will be tolerant to heat and dry spells.

Romeo Cleyera Spacing

For a more seamless appearance for privacy hedges, or border planting space four feet, center on center. For a less seamless appearance for uses such as accent planting, space seven feet, center on center.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
