Another surprise was to learn how to prune myrtle tree French style "pollarding" : topping the branches at same spot every spring before new growth. The tree forms unique knuckles where new growth sprouts for summer blooming branches. The picture on top highlights the contour of a well pruned myrtle tree. More garden views below. Enjoy!
