The Q&A Archives: Flowering cherry bush

Question: I recently saw an advertisement in a little catalog for a flowering cherry bush that you could use for a hedge row. Are you aware of any such bush and would it grow in the tropical southcentral region (Louisiana)?

Answer: The plant is question is Eugenia or Surinam cherry. It is quite popular as a hedge plant in Florida so I think it would grow well in your gardening region, too.
