Design Ideas Myrtle was a favorite garden plant of ancient Rome, where it was sheared regularly to release its fragrant oils. It remains an ideal small hedge plant for city gardens in warmer regions, where it works well in Mediterranean and drought-resistant landscapes. Shear or grow naturally. Use as background, a barrier hedge, a formal hedge around a rose garden or as a simple low-maintenance foundation plant for walls and fence lines. Makes a nice and simple topiary form if trained or sheared from the beginning.
