Dwarf form of Sweet Myrtle that should be a great addition to the evergreen shrub palette here in PT.  Hardiness is increased with less water in summer and likes a nice sunny spot - we can do this!   Aromatic foliage when crushed with small fragrant white flowers late summer.  This has got to be deer resistant although the cute vermin are cultivating a palette for deer-proof food.  This will get just 3'-4 tall and rounded and will be happy in drier, hotter sites although it tolerates more consistently moist conditions just fine.
