Miniature but Mighty!
The Myrtle bloomed in time for open gardens. Just what's needed for a twilight garden opening as these tiny blooms shone out like stars. Don't you just love these miniature balls of fuzz? Traditionally, every British royal bride has a sprig of Myrtle in her bouquet. Whilst a Mediterranean native, this variety: communis is relatively hardy and this particular specimen has been in a pot on the west side of the house where it has thrived for 6 or 7 years quite happily with little or no attention.
