Myrtus communis, also known as Common Myrtle, is an evergreen shrub or small tree native to the Mediterranean region. It is widely cultivated as an ornamental plant and is highly appreciated for its aromatic leaves and fragrant flowers. The plant grows up to 5 meters tall and has entire leaves that exude a pleasant scent due to the essential oil they contain. The star-like flowers, usually white, have five petals and attract pollinators like bees. The plant produces round berries that are usually blue-black in color, but there is also a variety with yellow-amber berries. It is an ideal plant for gardens and parks, often used as a hedge due to its ability to be easily trimmed. Myrtus communis thrives in well-drained soil, preferably neutral to alkaline, and it is tolerant of maritime exposure. In addition to its aesthetic value, this plant also has various uses. The leaves can be used as a flavoring in savory dishes, while the dried fruits and flower buds are used to add flavor to sauces and syrups. The plant also has medicinal properties, being used to treat urinary infections, digestive problems, and skin conditions. An essential oil derived from the plant is known for its antiseptic properties. In Sardinia and Corsica, Myrtus communis is used to produce a traditional liqueur called Mirto. Overall, Myrtus communis is a versatile and attractive plant that can enhance any garden or landscape with its beauty and fragrance.
