Flowering Myrtle Brooch - Michael Michaud
Flowers are born in summer and autumn in panicles of crinkled flowers with crepe-like texture. Colours vary from deep purple to red to white, with almost every shade in between. The fruit is a capsule, green and succulent at first, then ripening to dark brown or black dryness. Flowering Myrtles can fill every landscape need, from tidy street trees to dense barrier hedges. It is common in Southern France, the Iberian Peninsula, Italy and in milder climates in the US.
The Flowering Myrtle leaves are cast in hand patinated bronze and accented with white freshwater pearls.
