Native to the Mediterranean, the gorgeous Myrtus communis plant is an aromatic evergreen shrub with pointed, glossy leaves. In the spring and summer it will produce sweet-scented, white flowers that create a wonderful aroma in your garden.
The Myrtle Bush looks beautiful as a sunny border or growing against a south or west facing wall. Alternatively, you can plant yours in a large pot to make it easier to move indoors during the winter. Keeping your plant away from below-freezing temperatures will help it thrive and reach its full potential.
Make sure your shrub has plenty of rich, well drained soil and is placed in a bright, sunny spot.
