Myrtus communis - Common Myrtle


  • Myrtus communis is a prestigious, AGM (Award of Garden Merit) evergreen shrub that produces masses of white, fluffy flowers which cover its arched branches in the spring. Dark magenta, elongated berries full of herbal, resinous flavour appear in the autumn. The fruits can be used similar to that of the juniper berry to spice various foods, jellies, and drinks. The Common Myrtle can make a splendid low hedge and will grow very well even when placed in a pot or planter (if positioned in full sun).  It tolerates some maritime exposure. It has an exotic effect. 

  • We have excellent quality, 10-15cm tall starter plants on offer.
