Because of the increasing appreciation for Mediterranean maquis plants in pot and for myrtle particularly, some ornamental characters of myrtle cultivars have been studied. Selections were obtained with the researches carried out by DESA of the University of Sassari in the last years. Some of these cultivars in fact showed valuable ornamental characters and have been chosen to study pot growing performance, plant architecture, vegetative vigour, behavior to treatments of pruning and formation. The evenience of stress symptoms under the experiment condition was also observed, as well as the possibility of commercialization like pot bloomed plants, rather than like plant for cut foliage production (green, bloomed or with fruit) or for hedge. In particular, the research concerned the cultivars ‘Daniela’, ‘Luisa’ and ‘Angela’ and their response to pot pruning to regulate plant architecture, measuring at the same time the quantity and the quality of the biomass produced.
