A large growing myrtle, to 10 feet. Leaves are variegated with creamy white margins. It can be grown as a shrub, or as a single or multi-trunked small tree. Beautiful in the garden, with small white flowers in the fall, followed by small black berries. Evergreen. In hot areas grow it in a bit of afternoon shade, otherwise full sun. It is excellent for topiaries, also fresh cut greens in arrangements or for wreathmaking.
