I just bought 2 Eugenias with the 3 round bunches of greenery on the stem. No information came with these plants. I would like to know how much water/ how much sunlight/ can they stay outside all year and are they easy to keep? Thank you,,,Jackie Tyndall

Eugenia is only hardy to zone 9 and you are in zone 8A. You will need to plant them in a container and bring them in for the winter or at least whenever temps drop into the 20's. They are not difficult to care for. Provide a full to partial sun exposure and water to maintain moderate moisture. Make sure the containers drain well.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
