Hi - I live in Jersey & have had a large Myrtle which flowered from July to the end of October every year. Looked like it was covered in snow, very pretty but the snow & south westerly high winds in 2012 knocked it down completely. Lucky for me it did have seedlings & one has taken it's place. This time I think I'll contain the height to keep it from the winds...hopefully!
It does have a perfume but seems not to flower when small. Mine is in the garden & there it shoots up quite quickly. Am waiting to see if it flowers this year.
It started out in a semi shady northwest/northeast aspect but once it cleared the fence it was in a sunnier southwest position. There are a lot of trees surrounding my place.
Hope you find this helpful to you?
