The Q&A Archives: Brush Cherry

Question: Please tell me about the SYZYGIUM Paniculatum Brush Cherry.
How fast does it grow and how high and wide does it grow?
Could this be a good narrow hedge plant?

Answer: Syzygium paniculatum, the Brush Cherry, can reach heights of 30'-60' unless clipped back on an annual basis. It's a moderately fast grower, especially in rich, moist, well-draining soils. It makes an excellent hedge, but has a thick root system which will crowd out nearby plants, and the dropping fruit can be messy if planted near pavement.

Hope this provides some useful information!
