Aniseed Myrtle (Syzygium Anisatum)

Aniseed Myrtle is closely related to Lemon Myrtle. The leaves can be eaten directly from the tree, used in teas or ground up and added to bread dough, biscuits, stuffing, syrups and dressings. They are found in sub-tropical rainforests of eastern Australia and can grow up to 45m tall. Their white scented flowers appear in Spring, creating a stunning and fragrant display.

Aniseed Myrtle is high in antioxidants and nutrients such as vitamin C, folate and magnesium.
