The Claret Tops Honey Myrtle is an easy to grow, small evergreen shrub known for its striking claret coloured new growth, contrasting prettily with the masses of small white flowers arriving in Spring.
Growing 1 - 1.5 m, Claret Tops is ideal for feature planting, contrast, coastal planting, low hedging, attracting bird and insect life and layering for effect. Dense foliage renders it perfect for low hedging, while the exciting colour changes are wonderful for contrast and layering to create a stunning backdrop. A unique and pretty addition to any garden, she is also low maintenance and drought resistant, making her hardy and happy to grow in near all conditions.
Sensitive to frost, hardy to all other elements. Most well drained soils. Full sun or part shade. Attractive to birds & insects.
