Ugni molinae ‘Red Devil’

'Chilean Guava'. Previously known as Myrtus ugni, this little Myrtle inhabits woodland and scrub in S. Chile and is fairly hardy here, forming an erect evergreen shrub to about 1.5m high, with small leathery leaves and particularly pretty, waxy, soft-pink fragrant bells followed by absolutely delicious (!) mahogany-red fruit in October, tasting like sweets. 'Red Devil' was selected for the bright red new foliage. In cold areas this is best planted in a sheltered corner, in case of a bad winter.

Pot size: 2L
