Lemon Myrtle is a rainforest tree, native to sub-tropical Queensland, growing 6-8 metres high, with a width of 3-5 metres. It has attractive dark green leaves and a low-branching habit and is adorned with clusters of white flowers in summer.

This citrus is native to other coastal areas of Australia. The plant is also known to grow in the wild regions of Victoria, South Australia, and New South Wales.

What is Lemon Myrtle known as?
Backhousia Citriodora – (common names lemon myrtle, lemon scented myrtle, lemon scented ironwood) is a flowering plant in the family Myrtaceae, genus Backhousia.

Where does the word Lemon Myrtle come from?
Baron Ferdinand Von Mueller (1825-1896), the renowned Botanist, first described this plant and named it after James Backhouse, an English Botanist and Quaker Missionary. Lemon Myrtle was first distilled around 1890 by a German doctor who sent it home to be used in the essential oil industry. It is thought that this could of have been the first isolation of citral, and the oil was named citral after the botanical name of the tree.
