Clusia is the hardiest and most low maintenance hedge available today. With no bug or pest problems, clusia is the clear choice for a hedge that will be full from bottom to top, lush and will create a beautiful accent wall to your property. Clusia guttifera or clusia small leaf is the only kind of hedge you can use in the clusia family. Planting and installation is so easy, you just dig a hole or trench and place your clusia right next to each other to create a beautiful boundary and the perfect privacy hedge. Clusia guttifera is very easy to trim and if trimmed correctly at the top every 6 months it will remain full from top to bottom for a gorgeous privacy hedge that will give your property a beautiful aesthetic, keep out noise and provide a natural fence that will protect your property while making it look beautiful and green. Clusia plants are moderate-fast growers with an average rate of 2-2.5 feet a year of growth which is great as they get really full relatively fast and provide the privacy you need in no time. If planted by the recommended spacing of 7 gallon clusia, 15 gallon clusia or 25 gallon clusia you can achieve this privacy instantly and not have to wait.

Clusia hedges even do well in our sandy soil, as a family of native trees to the Caribbean and south Florida it thrives in our weather and environment making it one of the nicest and most low maintenance privacy hedges available.
