Myrtifolia is a form of the Portuguese Laurel, Prunus lusitanica. It is an evergreen and the main attraction is the dark green shiny leaves.
The tiny white flowers are borne in long cascading tresses in June, and have a delicate scent. There are usually tiny purple fruitlets in the autumn - not suitable for humans but attractive to birds.
Myrtifolia is very easy to grow, very hardy, and can be pruned at any time. It remains a small tree, with a dense spreading habit. It is a good choice as a large patio plant, and can be treated as an alternative to the traditional patio bay tree.
