This myrtle tree is native to the southwest coast of Australia. Although it can grow to be 5 metres in height, it usually stays more of a shrub like plant.
The white flowers are arranged in spikes at the ends of branches which have green scale like leaves that look like they protect the dark coloured branches.
Chenille honey myrtle’s enjoy a well drained or sandy soil and work well with some sun.
Austrian botanist Stephan Endlicher first formerly described this specimen in 1837.
