Myrtus Communis or the common Myrtle is a medium sized shrub with aromatic, leathery leaves which are 15-30mm long. A native to the Mediterranean, the common Myrtle is somewhat drought tolerant and happy to grow outdoors in well draining soil or be kept as an indoor plant.
A profusion of white flowers followed by purple berries are displayed during summer.
The young twigs are easily wired into shape and they can make a nice bonsai tree within a comparative short timeframe.
These young Myrtle trees are aged 2 years and measure between 9cm and 13cm in height.
Grown from cuttings, they are provided in a 7cm pot and ready for potting on into either another pot or the ground the thicken up.We do not list trees for sale until we believe that they are ready and they are always shipped in the pot to minimise the stress to the tree.
