Known by several names including Strawberry Myrtle and Tazzberry, this evergreen shrub grows to a little over one and a half metres if left unpruned but is best maintained as a low growing hedge to no more than one metre. Drought tolerant once established, this is the perfect addition for an edible landscape or food forest.
Suited to full sun or part shade, this easy to grow shrub has no pest or disease issues, although being a member of the Myrtaceae family, can be prone to rust in some situations. Pruned to shape if required and to maintain a compact, dense habit. Tolerant of dry conditions once established, plant performance is improved with supplementary water during dry weather.
