Product Description

This small, rounded, spreading evergreen reaches a height of 15 to 20 feet with a 10- to 15-foot spread in a sunny spot. Taller trees can be found in partially shaded sites where the tree reaches skyward for light. The large, eight-inch-long leaves are bright red-bronze or coppery when young and maintain this color for a considerable period of time until eventually turning dark green. The small, white, fragrant flowers are produced on terminal panicles in spring and followed by small, inedible fruits. Bronze Loquat can be espaliered, grown in patio containers, or used as a specimen. Although shrubby with a tight, compact, dense crown, it can easily be trained into a small tree form and used for a small shade tree near a deck or patio.

Hardy in zones 9-11.

In cooler regions, makes an excellent patio tree, outside in the summer and indoors in the winter.

Proper name: Eriobotrya deflexa.
