Austromyrtus tenuifolia – midgen berry

Natives (A-Z)

Also known as the the midgen berry.

I planted this along at the bottom of the eastern fence several years ago but it became overshadowed by a more vigorous westringia. Earlier this year the Westringia went and with the new access to light and space this little shrub has grown well. It is now quite leggy but I read it responds well to pruning and shaping. The flowers and berries are very pretty.
