Granite honey myrtle. Shrub or small tree to 15’ tall with an equal spread. Noted for its elliptical, bluish or gray-green foliage that takes on a bronze cast when actively growing and for its crimson-red flowers, 3-4” long that appear from spring until fall. The brown, papery bark adds an additional ornamental flourish as it shreds in long columns from the trunk and branches. Tolerant of some shade, it prefers full sun; one of the toughest shrubs we grow. Useful as a screen, windbreak, or in large containers. Western Australia.
