Plant Species of the genus Bejaria

Information about this genus
Name: Bejaria
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Few species will tolerate any frost and most are best grown under subtropical conditions. They are also intolerant of drought and prefer cool, moist, well-drained, humus-enriched soil that is slightly acidic. Plant in sun or partial shade and, if necessary, trim after flowering. Propagate from seed, layers or small half-hardened cuttings.
Description: Found from northern South America through Central America and into southern USA, this genus encompasses 25 species of evergreen shrubs and trees. Members of the erica family, the Ericaceae, they have the racemes of small bell-shaped flowers typical of many of their relatives. The leaves are ovate to oblong with smooth edges and are seldom more than 2?in (5?cm) long.
