Australian Honey Myrtle are evergreen, in general small to medium-sized woody shrubs from the Myrtle family (Myrtaceae) with short, usually more or less linear, slightly aromatic leaves and terminal racemes of bright colored flowers. They are mostly native of Australia, whereas few tropical species naturally occur in Indonesia, New Guinea, New Caledonia and Malaysia. In nature they grow in humus-rich, slightly moist soils along watercourses and at the edges of swamps in open woodlands. They can be successfully cultivated as pot plants in any fertile, humus-rich, slightly sandy to rocky, lime-free soil in a sunny spot throughout the year with a winter minimum of some 10°C and reduced watering.
Sow fine seeds flat on top of any rich, sandy soil at some 20°C. Do not cover seeds with soil. Keep pots always moist from beneath and sunny until germination starts, then keep soil drier.
All are of USDA climate zone 10.
