Plant Appreciation #006

‘Myrtus Communis’ or ‘Common Myrtle’, a lovely evergreen shrub/tree with beautiful delicate white flowers bursting with stamen. This Myrtle needs well drained soil and a full sun spot in your garden (also needs shelter from strong wind).
We have a few of these, but one that is particularly lovely has grown up through the terratex in a poly tunnel and is now a small tree rather than a bush, and is currently covered in these beautiful star burst flowers!
