Availability: In Stock
Family: Myrsinaceae
Cultural Code: TGH HP what's this?

"African Boxwood" or "Cape Myrtle" Thick-foliaged popular pseudo-bonsai, pleniful tiny leathery coin shaped leaves stud distinctly fastigate woody stems. We recommend this for indoor bonsai for it can be shaped successfully; nonetheless, the very erect woody trunks just cry out to be staked topiaries with single woody trunks toped with (if constantly tip pinched) rounded globes of deep leathery green.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
