Ugni molinae

'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 delicious mahogany-red fruit, tasting like sweets. In cold Northern areas needs wall protection.
