Historically, Swedish brides sometimes wore the branches of myrtles in their hair but I don't know why. I've only seen it in Scandinavian art.
kniphofia said:Because its a woody plant it's highly unlikely that your cutting will root in water. If it's still fresh, take semi-hardwood cuttings of the tips (about 4-6 inches or so) and dip in hormone rooting powder if you have some, then put the cutting(s) into sandy compost or moist sand. You can cover the pot with a plastic bag and put somewhere out of direct sun indoors. Check the pot for moisture (don't let it get too wet) and in several weeks you may have success.
