Hypocalymma xanthopetalum – Golden Flowered Myrtle

This delightful Western Australian shrub has golden yellow small flowers massed along the stems from mid winter to mid spring. It has small leaves, and a compact upright habit. Likes a well drained soil in full sun to partial shade, and a low phosphorus native fertiliser. Prune after flowering to encourage a dense habit if required. The flowers are lovely for picking.
