Leptospermum

Search Leptospermum
The wonderful Tea Tree is part of a genus made up of about 80 species of evergreen shrubs or small trees with small narrow, needle-like leaves, some of which are aromatic when crushed, a bit lemony. Native of Australia, it has a relative that is native to NZ which is naturally widespread in certain areas.

When Captain Cook’s crew and the early settlers were suffering from scurvy as well as withdrawal from their regular English tea, they would use the leaves of a variety of the Leptospermum to make a brew.

The Australian Silky Tea Tree is a graceful, open, evergreen tree with stunning red bronze foliage. In summer masses of single white flowers with green centres smother the branches and make the bees happy. Quite tolerant but happiest in the sun with good drainage.

'Coppersheen' looks good as a single specimen and the foliage colour combines well with other garden colours. Equally it looks great as a closely planted screen or hedge and for this purpose it trims very well.
