Dwarf Myrtle - Myrtus communis 'Microphylla'

An evergreen shrub with tiny leaves that flowers from spring to autumn. Flowers turn to black berries. Small, shiny leaves are adorable. Can be shaped into a topiary, trained on standard or made into a bonsai subject. Tender, move indoors for winter or protect with a coldframe if you are in an area that with winter temperatures below 20F. 

Growth rate is estimated but this plant is very tolerant of regular pruning (that's why it makes a great bonsai subject.)

  • growth rate is 2" to 4" per year
  • produces tiny white flowers throughout the summer
  • flowers turn to black berries
  • growth rate: Less than 1"/yr
  • zone 9 - 9 - hardy to 20F
  • heat zones 10 - 9
  • very cool sun/eastern sun to part shade
  • regular water but let soil dry out to barely damp in between watering sessions to avoid over watering
  • fertilize after 2 years if planted in a container
  • an indoor or outdoor plant
  • comes in a 4" pot
