Native Guava

Rhodomyrtus psidioides

A small dense shrub, with white/pink flowers appearing in clusters in Spring or Summer. The leaves have a sweet, fruity smell when crushed and are unusually glossy below. Fast-growing and hardy in most conditions. Tolerate light frosts. Unfortunately, since the appearance of Myrtle Rust disease in Australia, Native Guava is now a functionally extinct species
