Backhousia myrtifolia

Cinnamon Myrtle (aka. Carrol, Ironwood) is a native hardwood that was used medicinally by Aboriginal people and popularised as bush food in the late 1980s.
Its leaves give off a cinnamon fragrance when rubbed or crushed and may be used to flavour curries, stews, pies, biscuits, and pastries. Grows well in most soil and climate conditions, and will tolerate long, dry spells if watered deeply. Cinnamon Myrtle is popular as an essential oil and native spice. Allowed to grow bushy, this small tree makes a wonderful addition to a leafy backyard and can be even used as a hedge.
