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 this gift helps

The Eden Project is an educational charity and social enterprise and when you buy anything from our shop, you're supporting our work and educational programmes.

As well as offering our visitors to Eden a memorable, educational day out, we also use our expertise to work with local organisations across the world.

In Thailand, we have been working with local organisation FORRU on reforestation projects to restore large areas of degraded tropical forest. Over 65,000 trees have been planted and community training and learning has been shared across the country building up a network of local knowledge on how to protect rainforests and conserve natural resources..
