Myrtle tree

I love the Australian myrtle tree, the fruit and flowers are so attractive. These trees grow to a fair size but can be kept as a hedge or topiary as I have done here in the picture. I have two of these in lovely old large pots. The fruit is slightly bitter to taste but can be made into a lovely jam. The pompom flowers are great for displaying in a large vase.
