Myrtle

Myrtus luma

Myrtle is an amazingly aromatic shrub, prefect for any garden.

In milder climes this beautiful evergreen shrub grows to a small fragrant tree with the most stunning cinnamon coloured bark. The bark gradually peels to reveal a creamy white layer beneath.

Added to this it has a mass of white solitary flowers followed by dark edible fruits. Also known as Myrtus apiculata to add confusion!

How your gift is doing good

At the Eden Project we believe plants are important to the future of us and our planet. Through our gardens and Biomes we inspire visitors to reconnect with the natural world around them - and to want to help preserve it. The money you spend in the Eden webshop goes towards our environmental education programmes.

Over 40,000 under-16s from 900 different schools visit our 'living classroom' each year. They get a unique opportunity to delve deep into the rainforest and form the vital connection with their environment that inspires them to want to conserve it.

Find out more about our plans to build a canopy walkway to continue our educational work around rainforests.
