The Q&A Archives: ternstroemia cleyera

Question: I need to find a nursery in the San Diego area where I could buy a ternstroemia japonica or japanese cleyera.
Can you please help me. I need it for my daughters wedding as it is a tradition to place a branch of this shrub on a shinto shrine at the end of the marriage ceremony.
Thank you,
Donna Smith

Answer: Japanese Cleyera (Ternstroemia gymnanthera) is widely grown in Texas and Louisiana, but not in California. I'm afraid I cannot find a local source for you. You might want to find an online nursery and order directly from them. Best wishes in your search!
