Blepharocalyx cruckshanksii is a highly fragrant, flowering and fruiting evergreen shrub that prefers a shady, moist spot. It will give you an unforgettable sight with thousands of white, myrtle like flowers opening in the Summer. Black, edible berries appear which give the plant a showy, ornamental look until early Winter. The fruits taste similar to those from its better-known relative, the Luma. It has an almost arching habit due to the branches being pulled downwards under the weight of its foliage, flowers, and fruits. Orange, peeling bark is also a feature of the species. For optimum growth, the Heaven Scent is best to be positioned where it will receive partial shade, full shade. It can withstand temperatures down to -5c.
We have excellent quality, 6-8cm tall seedlings on offer.
The intended main use of this plant is to grow food for human consumption. We always recommend further research to learn the different ways in which the food source can be prepared and consumed.
