Description

Myoporum bateae is a pyramid-shaped, sweet-smelling shrub to about 5 m with one to a few straight main stems and slender horizontal branches. The foliage is sparse with the leaves elegantly curved downwards from the branchlets. Flowering occurs from September to November when there are clusters of 3 – 10 flowers along the branchlets. The petals are pale purple and although each flower is only about 5.6–6mm in diameter, they can be so numerous that the plant appears to be sprinkled with snow. Plants grow best in a cool, moist, semi-shaded position on a rich loam or clay. It is moderately frost resistant and can be pruned to shape.
