Rotheca microphylla (Musical Note) is a small, bushy shrub with oval-shaped, glossy leaves that grow two to five feet tall. Clusters of off-white and white bell-shaped flowers with red stamens appear in large masses throughout the year. The unopened flowers resemble musical notes, giving the plant its name. This low-maintenance plant is perfect for gardens as it blooms well in both full sun and shade, and tolerates some drought. It attracts butterflies and hummingbirds, making it a great choice for people who want to encourage wildlife in their gardens.

This shrub is easy to maintain and grows best in USDA Zones 9-11, where it prefers regular water and moderate water. When growing Rotheca microphylla (Musical Note) in containers, it's important to make sure the soil drains well and doesn't get too soggy after watering. Additionally, if planting in cold climates, it's essential to bring the potted plant indoors or cover with a protective layer during winter. With minimal effort, this small shrub with white flowers will be a beautiful addition to any landscape.
