Luma apiculata is an evergreen fruit shrub that produces masses of pretty, pure white flowers in mid-summer, attracting the bees and butterflies. The flowers have a beautiful peach like scent and are the most extraordinary looking with long, curling stamens on the older flowers. This ornamental shrub produces an abundance of soft, black, aromatic berries which have a special hint of spice, the perfect addition to make your very own tangy, bittersweet Sardinian myrtle liqueur – Mirto Rosso. The cinnamon branches are sculptural and contrast beautifully against its dark green leaves. Our Chilean Myrtle looks great planted in the ground, placed in the conservatory or it can make a stunning patio plant.
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.
