Lemon-Scented Myrtle (Ceramic Pot Included 160mm)

$65.00

The Lemon-Scented Myrtle is a beautiful feature plant, offering a spectacular floral display in summer/autumn and highly aromatic lemon-scented leaves. She will remain compact in a large pot on the patio and can grow to a medium sized tree in the garden. The Lemon-Scented Myrtle is a popular girl for a reason! Her tangy, fresh leaves can be used as an alternative to lemon in tea, water, casseroles and stir-frys to name a few! You can also dry and ground her leaves to use in cakes, biscuits, ice-cream and glazes – yom yom!

Caring For Your Plant:

           

Lemon-Scented Myrtles love a partly shaded to sunny outdoor position and will tolerate light frost.  They like to be kept out of strong winds and like to be kept moist especially during summer. Prune to keep shape.

Growing capacity 4-6m height x 2-8m width.

She can be repotted into a larger pot plant when needed or can be planted in the garden at anytime as well! Ensure no water is sitting in the bottom of her ceramic pot as this will rot the roots.

How She Will Arrive:

Our Lemon-Scented Myrtle’s are planted in gardener’s pots and are delivered in a beautiful 160mm ceramic pot plant in your choice of colour!

They also include care instructions and a beautifully handwritten gift card seeded with Swan River Daisies! Even more natives to enjoy!
