Myrtle's use for wildlife
The recent list of plants good for insects was interesting, especially as I am seeking to plant things that have wildlife value in a garden that has recently been hit by honey fungus; the latter caused the felling of a large eucalyptus. I noticed that myrtle, which is supposed to be fairly resistant to honey fungus, is listed as having protein-rich pollen and being good for hoverflies.
However, I am puzzled, since the page for Myrtle (https://www.gardenersworld.com/plants/myrtus-communis/) describes it as having 'no particular known value to wildlife in the UK'.
Is this just a mistake or are there different types of myrtle?
And can anyone suggest any other shrubs or small trees that are good for birds or insects but would survive honey fungus?
