· Dean-The Japanese Cleyera can grow 8 to 10 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet in width. It would be best to plant it no closer than 4 foot from the home. Unless there is a low wide over hang to the home keeping its height within bounds should be no problem. Japanese Cleyera responds very well to pruning. During the active growth season, you can prune cleyera lightly to shape and keep within your desired bounds. If your cleyera has grown too large for the space it is growing, you can also perform rejuvenation pruning to get it down to a smaller size again if this becomes necessary.
I noted below the link to the Japanese Cleyera plant file in Gardenality. Just click on the link to go directly to the plant file. There you will see this plants characteristics and information on planting, pruning, fertilization, etc.www.gardenality.com/Plants/192/Trees/Japanese-Cleyera.html
Hope this helps.
