Usually clipped into formal hedges or shapes from 8 to 20 feet high.  Unclipped, it is a handsome, narrow-ish tree, to 30-60 feet tall.  Eugenia is one of the most popular hedging, background, and screening plants in mild and nearly frost free areas.   Psyllids can be a nuisance, but are easily controlled.  Brush cherry thrives in well drained garden soil.  New foliage appears as brightly tinted red.  Its fruit is rose purple, showy, and edible.  Sometimes referred to as Syzygium paniculatum
