Luma apiculata (syn. Myrtus luma) Hardy form

One of the very finest large shrubs/small trees for bark, it being a gorgeous smooth, cinnamon-orange, peeling in patches to reveal the white inner bark. Clouds of white myrtle flowers in late summer/autumn followed by edible black fruit. These are from plants known to have taken extreme cold in Dec 2010, way below -10c, so are worth trying anywhere with reasonable shelter.

Pot size: 2L
