Plant Information

Top Tips

The small leaves of Lophomyrtus make it ideal as a topiary specimen for a dramatic effect.

Care Guide

Plant ensuring that the top of the root ball is level with the soil.
Keep well-watered.
Remove dead, diseased or misplaced branches in late winter or early spring, otherwise very easy to grow.
If grown as hedging, prune in spring and mid summer - Lophomyrtus is tolerant of severe pruning.
Fully hardy, but offer winter protection in cold or exposed positions and avoid overwatering during the colder months.
