Myrtus communis tarentina

Tarentum Myrtle

Tarentum Myrtle is a small evergreen shrub of dense growth, and dark green, pointed leaves carried in abundance. In late Summer through to Autumn, pink buds open to white-cupped fragrant flowers with many yellow stamens. Tarentina has leaves slightly narrower than the standard Common Myrtle. White berries develop in Winter. A good addition to the mixed shrub bed, and for seaside gardens.
