As the name may suggest, Bigfoot is the largest of the three Cleyeras offered by the Southern Living Plant Collection. It is able to reach heights of 15 to 20ft and 5-6ft wide which makes it ideal for usage as a large uniform hedge. New foliage on the Bigfoot will emerge with a crisp bronze-green appearance, then shortly turn to a dark glossy green. As autumn comes around, the Bigfoots foliage develops a bronzy red hue that fits in perfectly with the new colors of the season. This Cleyera will respond to pruning and shearing, allowing one to sculpt their natural privacy screen to their particular liking. Plant the Bigfoot Cleyera in part shade to full sun, and slightly acidic soil for best performance.
