LEPTOSPERMUM

Commonly known as Tea tree



All flower APR-JUL. They can be grown successfully outdoors in most of the country providing they are planted in a hot, dry and very well sheltered location. If these conditions are not available, then they should be grown in pots or containers in an ericaceous compost and brought into the greenhouse for the winter

Small, bright flowers making up for their size by their profuse flowering.

Early Australian settlers steeped leaves of some varieties for drinking. L. scoparium is the source of Manuka honey.

Genus of about 85 species of evergreen shrubs and trees occurring in rainforest and semi-arid areas mainly in Australia but also from southeastern asia to New Zealand.
