Austromyrtus dulcis x tenuifolia ‘Copper Tops’ – Midyim

‘Copper Tops’ is a hardy spreading shrub with arching branches of fine green foliage and coppery new growth. It has masses of fluffy white flowers in late spring and early summer. The edible greyish white berries that follow are tasty and are produced in autumn. A good bush tucker plant which is also decorative and easy care.
Likes a full sun to part shade spot, in moist but well drained soil. A tough plant that can withstand harsher conditions once it is established. Responds well to pruning, which will encourage more dense growth.
