Myrtle is another common and popular flowering perennial. The plant has dark, glossy and small leaves, and is dotted with beautiful windmill-shaped flowers that bloom from mid-spring to early summer. Myrtle grows to form a dense carpet of foliage, making it a perfect ground cover plant.
Care for myrtle is rather easy. They grow best in full sun to part shade, in average, dry to moderately moist soil, that drains well. It can tolerate full shade, but they flower the best in full sun. Deer and rabbit resistant.
