Rhaphithamnus spinosus is an unusual, upright evergreen shrub with small, dark green leaves and spines in-between from South-America. The Prickly Myrtle has trumpet-like, small, pink flowers in May which are followed by masses of attractive blue-violet coloured fruits which remain on the branches until mid-Winter. This plant is ideal against a wall or near the house or at a garden entrance where it is protected from cold winds. It is hardy enough for most of the UK over winter without protection. It is also an ideal bonsai subject, and can be trimmed.
