Myrtus, with the common name myrtle, is a genus of flowering plants in the family Myrtaceae, described by Linnaeus in 1753.

Common name: myrtle
Color: White with yellow-tipped stamens
Bloom time: May to July
Height: 4.00 to 6.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
For the best results, plant myrtle outdoors in late spring in a well-drained, sheltered position. This gives it the best chance of establishing lots of root before winter weather sets in.
You can also grow myrtle in a container in soil-based compost. Water and feed with a potash-rich tomato food during the growing season.
The potash will encourage more flower and also harden the wood. Ease off watering from late August onwards, and then dry off almost completely before over-wintering the container. The shelter of a warm wall under the eaves of the house is a perfect place.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 45°F

Care:
  • Remove the leaves from the bottom half of the cutting to create a bear stem.
  • This reduces the water usage of the cutting.
  • Pour a little powdered rooting hormone into a small container.
  • Don t contaminate the large bottle of hormone by dipping the cutting directly into the original bottle.
  • Dip the cut end into the powder, shaking the excess off the stem.
