Turraea Overview

This is a genus of evergreen trees and shrubs, which are grown for their flowers and foliage. They are frost tender, min 12-15C, and prefer full sun, with fertile, well drained soil. You should water freely in full growth, and less at other times. The young plants may need their growing point removed to promote branching. Propagation is by seeds in the spring or by semi-ripe cuttings in the summer.
