• Myrtus communis
This is a native of the Mediterranean and as such likes a sunny spot in well drained soil. It's half hardy. The dark green leaves set off the pretty, scented white flowers with their long stamens and the trunk goes a beautiful deep, rich brown as the plant ages. With us, it seeds itself around and always seems to choose the perfect spot to place itself. We find it to be quite fast growing. The wood and leaves added to a barbecue give an extra spice to grilled meats. The fresh flowers can be eaten in salads. 2l pot in spring
