A few years back I bought a bush in a pot, which had no name, or maybe I lost it. I bought it from a good nursery, and really just like the pot and the lovely leaves. Its gets moved around the garden in its pot, and this year it got repotted into a larger pot. It survived the very cold winter when temperatures dropped to around -17C. It is relatively slow growing, and each spring I give it a little trim.
From somewhere towards the back of the garden, I moved this to the patio last week, as it is covered in flowers. With its young stems a maroon colour, its evergreen leaves with creamy white margins is a looker even without the flowers.
The central part of the flower I believe called the stigma is square at its base.
The reason I am writing up about this now, is that I think I have name. It may be Luma Apiculata Glanleam Gold. If anyone has a differing view, please add this to the comments. July's edition of The Garden has a very good four page article on this group: The Myrtles, with close family members Luma and Lophomyrtus.
