Eugenias are the perfect privacy hedge. They can grow up to 4 feet per year. Spring is the perfect time to plant them. Eugenias are sometimes referred to as Monterrey Brush Cherries (MBC’s), the only difference being the the MBC’s are a little less prone to attracting little bugs that can make the leaves bumpy. We’re using the Eugenias pictured above to block off our neighbors on both sides of the yard.
