Eugenia plants (Eugenia spp.), also known as stoppers, are hardy to U.S. Department of Agriculture zones 9 through 11, depending on the species. Eugenias feature evergreen leaves, white flowers in spring and berries following flowering. This plant serves many uses, including as a fast-growing hedge on a property line, a background plant for a flower bed, or a screen for an unattractive wall or fence. Eugenias also thrive in containers. Once established, they require minimal care and are highly drought tolerant. Some species may grow as high as 35 feet, but smaller species are available for smaller spaces.
