Chilean Myrtle - Luma apiculata

Chilean myrtle - Luma apiculata

Another plant that very much caught my attention while over on the Kerry Coast was the Chilean Myrtle, Luma apiculata.

This beautiful shrub / tree seemed to be happily self seeding and growing nearly wild.  It clearly seems very happy in these mild wet conditions.

The specimens I saw have developed the most fantastic rich cinnamon coloured bark, which combined with fine structure and good foliage makes them stunning specimen trees.
