Gray honey myrtle. Though size is variable in the species, our clone reaches 15’ tall with a wide spread. The weeping habit of its long, arching branches gives this plant a delicate appearance. The velvety leaves are grayish-green to smoky gray and are often tinted purplish in youth; leaves are more rarely green and glabrous. Cream-colored flowers appear in early spring. Best in full sun, but this adaptable plant will tolerate semi-shade and drought. Prune to shape into a handsome small tree. Western Australia.
