Backhousia myrtifolia (Cinnamon Myrtle) is a small tree growing 3 to 7 metres that is ideally suited for hedging and screening neighbours. Native to subtropical rainforests in Queensland and New South Wales, it does best in moister climates but it can be planted in full sun or part-shade and is drought tolerant once established. Used as a substitute for cinnamon, its fragrant leaves and flowers can be used in both savoury and sweet dishes as well as be used to make a tea. It adds a unique taste to coffee.
