Lophomyrtus are low-maintenance evergreen shrubs or trees, loved for their colourful and attractive foliage which can be brown, purple, red or bronze-green, so they add great foliage or architectural interest to the garden. They are native to New Zealand in coastal, mountainous and forest environments. Lophomyrtus are best suited to pots, beds and borders and can be used for hedging/screening. You should expect to see your Lophomyrtus grow to an approximate height of up to 1.6m (5ft) and an approximate spread of up to 1.2m (4ft).
Lophomyrtus are best planted in a well-drained soil of sand, clay, loam or chalk within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best planted in a sheltered and partially shaded position in the garden. Lophomyrtus are happy planted in pots or containers too.
Avoid overwatering during the colder months. Remove dead, diseases or misplaced branches and prune lightly in late winter or early spring (pruning group 1). Will need winter protection in cold or exposed positions.
It is possible to propagate Lophomyrtus by semi-ripe heel cuttings in summer with bottom heat.
