Backhousia myrtifolia

Common Name: Grey Myrtle or Ironwood

Availabilty: In Stock

The Grey Myrtle is a very pretty evergreen tree with small, white flowers bearing tiny papery fruits. The fragrant foliage is a cheery, bright green with new growth coming in with golden-bronze tones. The leaves remain compact with a lightly cinnamon scent.

This medium sized tree grows 10 - 20 metres tall, which combined with the compact leaf habit renders it ideal for use as a tall hedge or screening plant. An additional benefit for use as a screen is the non-invasive root structure, (although we recommend it still be planted at least 3 metres away from buildings).

Wind tolerant, frost tolerant once established.  Most well drained soils.  Full sun or part shade. 

This product cannot be sold into South Australia due to quarantine restrictions.
