Backhousia citriodora Lemon Myrtle

Known for its strongly scented leaves, this native is a well known bushfood and native herbs. It is found growing naturally along the Queensland coastline.  Growing up to 6-8m tall, this tree makes a fantastic ornamental plant with its beautiful glossy leaves and fluffy white flowers.

The tree flowers in clusters covering the plant from summer to autumn. The leaves can be used to extract essential oils, and were traditionally used both in cooking and as a healing plant, as it contains antimicrobial properties. It is considered a cleaner and sweeter aroma than other lemongrass.

Lemon myrtle prefers to grow in a subtropical climate with plenty of sun, and well-drained soil. The mature plant is tolerant of some frost.
