RHS Award of Garden Merit

Best known as a traditional flower in Royal wedding bouquets since Queen Victoria's time, this extremely aromatic perennial is also useful in the kitchen and as a component of pot pourri. Believed to have been introduced to the UK by Sir Walter Raleigh, this slow-growing Mediterranean shrub, with its highly fragrant flowers and glossy dark green leaves, will lend an exotic touch to any garden. 

  • Slow-growing evergreen perennial shrub, can reach between 6-10 ft (2-3 m) in height.
  • Produces beautiful, fragrant white flowers with clusters of golden stamens, and aromatic, glossy dark green leaves.
  • Likes full sun and a fertile, well-drained soil. 
  • Tolerant of salt air.
  • In northern gardens, plant against a south-facing wall, and cover in horticultural fleece in winter. 
  • Also grows well in a container.
  • Trim in sping to maintain plant's shape. 

Culinary Uses

  • Use leaves fresh or dried, like bay leaves. 
  • Preserve leaves in oil or vinegar.
  • Use myrtle trimmings when smoking food. 
  • Leaves and berries are used in Middle Eastern cuisine, with pork and lamb, and have a flavour similar to allspice.
  • Berries can be dried and ground and used with game and venison.

Medicinal Uses

  • Myrtle leaves can be made into a decoction to be applied to bruises and haemorrhoids.
  • A tea can be made from the leaves and berries which may lower blood glucose, and help with bladder and urinary infections.
  • The berries are believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. 

Other Uses

  • Queen Victoria began the modern tradition of including sprigs of myrtle in wedding bouquets. 
  • All parts of the shrub can be dried and used in pot pourri.
