LeAnn Cleyera is a fast-growing, large shrub or small tree that features attractive, glossy evergreen foliage. The colorful new growth produced throughout the season emerges in shades of burgundy, orange and red. Cleyera is an excellent substitute for the disease-prone Red Tip Photinia.
Cleyera is useful in the landscape as an informal hedge, as a corner plant in foundation plantings, or as a background in landscape beds and islands. When lower branches are removed, Cleyera makes an outstanding tree form specimen.

Good Plants, Great PriceMay 14th 2014
The website was easy to traverse, however, I was searching for more plants than the pull down menu could display. Subsequently, working with the company rep and placing an order over the phone was easy. The price was certainly fair for 3 gallon containerized and the guarantee of obtaining this particular variety. Shipping charges were reasonable for the size, type and method. The only reason I didn't give this purchase 5 stars is because the shipping packaging could have been a bit more substantial to prevent in shipment damage. When the plants arrived it was a cardboard box superimposed over the top of another cardboard box and taped closed. As a result, several of the plants had squashed or broken down branches. The soil was moist and the containers themselves had been covered to retain moisture. The plants were healthy and good specimens. Ultimately, for this type of plant, my criticism of the shipping packaging should be balanced against the fact that it wasn't an issue. The branches on these plants are flexible and after planting they are thriving appropriately. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and the customer service I received.

Hi Roland - We're very happy to hear that the LeAnn Cleyera arrived safely and in good condition and that you are pleased with the quality. We do everything possible to ship the highest quality plants as safely as possible. The Cleyera are quite large plants so we often have to create unique boxes to fit them in...then use the custom-made insert that is stapled to the sides of the box to prevent any movement of the plant during transport. Thanks for your feedback!
