Myrtus Communis Subsp.Tarentina (Myrtle)

Myrtus Communis Subsp.Tarentina (Myrtle)

Compact, evergreen shrub

This small-leaved myrtle has deliciously scented, large, pink-tinted cream flowers in summer offset beautifully by glossy, dark green leaves. The flowers are followed, in autumn, by white berries. More compact and rounded than the species plant, it is a great choice for a sheltered, sunny spot in the garden.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (needs winter protection)
