Gorgeous flowers adding colour when little else is flowering in the garden!
 
Myrtaceae species - No shipment to WA or TAS
 
This cut Leptospermum grows as an upright, woody shrub with a dense habit and bark that is held close and firm to the trunk, 1 - 3m tall and is endemic to NSW, native to sandstone areas of the coast and adjacent plateaus of mid NSW, sclerophyll shrubland on skeletal sandstone soils.
 
It has stiff, triangular and sharply pointed leaves held alternatively at right angles to the stem, in Autumn to Winter, sometimes even through to Spring, solitary pale pink flowers paling to white on the outer rims and the base, have 5 petals and are 16mm in diameter, flowering at a time when little else is so makes a good addition to gardens.
 
Flowers occur on 2 - 3 year old wood so pruning is not necessary due to the dense habit as this would be at the expense of flowers for the next season but in the case of Bonsai, gentle tip pruning to shape plant is appreciated.
 
Best in full sun in well drained soil, it is extremely hardy and tolerates well drained and damp conditions, it is also salt resistant.
