Variegated Myrtle
Myrtus communis variegated

When viewing this plant, it is difficult to tell if there is more pink than white, more white than light green, or more cream than lime-green. This variegated form of Myrtle is a stunning, multi-colored landscape plant that can grow 8 to 10' tall and 6' wide in the landscape. This Myrtle should be "Up-front and Center" in any landscape! It is hardy in USDA Zones 8b through 10 in partial sun to partial shade. Spring blooms are white and highly fragrant and a bee magnet during bloom-cycle. The leaves are evergreen, shiny, and multicolored. Small, black seeds feed multiple songbirds during the fall. Once established, Variegated Myrtle is drought-tolerant.
