Another of the Chilean myrtles, this one makes a large, dense, aromatic, evergreen shrub or small tree, smothered by a multitude of small white fragrant flowers in May. The small leaves emerge strikingly copper coloured, turning glossy green. The edible berries turn from red to black. Fairly hardy, though needing sensible positioning in cold areas.
