Myrteola nummularia

Cranberry myrtle


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A rare Myrtle relative from Tierra del Fuego which is quite hardy here and is just the sweetest thing. Evergreen, aromatic leaves and small white flowers in summer which are followed by pink/white, pearly, edible berries that taste like some some exotic perfume. A perfect little plant. Good moist soil in some light shade although it will probably take sun nicely but we just happen to grow ours in shade where it has been a flawless performer.
