Eugenia Topiary
Plant Features:
Eugenia is popular because it's easily grown as a topiary: The plant features small, shiny, evergreen leaves that tolerates shearing, making it perfect for growing in fun shapes such as cones, spirals, or balls. Pruned eugenia topiaries are perfect for adding a formal touch to your patio or interior decor.

If you have a bright spot, eugenia topiaries are relatively easy to grow indoors. The biggest thing to keep in mind is that they like lots of light; they're perfect near large sunny windows or patio doors. Water enough to keep the soil moist, but not saturated, and don't let the soil dry out completely. When too dry, the plant wilts and the leaves turn dry and crunchy.

Happily, in most indoor situations, eugenia topiaries are relatively slow growing. You may need to shape yours once or twice a year to prevent it from starting to look shaggy. You can prune at any time.
