Thryptomene calycina or Heath Myrtle is a very delicate shrub with small, flat, slightly rounded aromatic leaves and has masses of very pretty small white star-shaped flowers that are produced from late winter into spring.

This plant bears flowers in such profusion that they can almost completely cover the plant with flower so a show stopper in the garden during winter when not a lot is flowering.  Whilst it is a native of Australia, this little Aussie import has a very classical cottage garden look to it, but will look at home in any garden border.

Plants are very adaptable and handle any well drained light soil - preferring a lime free soil.  An excellent cut flower so if you are cutting it for floral use it will keep your plant well shaped - stems last up to two weeks in a vase.  If you prefer to leave the flowers on the plant then you will need to prune it well after flowering has finished, a hard prune is perfectly fine with this plant. This  gorgeous plant is a must if you are wanting to grow cut flowers and adds a touch of elegance to any bouquet.

Fast growing but frost tender Thyrptomene calycina likes a sunny spot but can cope with a bit of wind.  These plants are only moderately drought resistant so will require water in dry spells.  The foliage is small and the young growing stems have a lovely reddish tint to them during summer.
