Common Name: Dwarf Tea Tree
Availabilty: In Stock
Leptospermum Nanum Rubrum, or the Dwarf Tea Tree as it can be more commonly known, is a hugely popular evergreen garden addition, and one of our personal favourites here at Divine. Stunning double deep pink flowers with dark centres bloom through late winter into the summer months, with additional sporadic flowering throughout the year.
Only growing up to 1 metre tall, this compact variety is ideal planted out in rockeries, for added contrast or colour, bushscapes, borders, cut flowers and specimen planting. Being drought, wind and frost resistant, the unique burgundy-grey tinged foliage is ideal for layering and colour contrast. Did we mention she's also highly attractive to native bees and wildlife?
Frost, drought, salt & wind hardy. Most well drained soils, hardy in arid-wet. Full sun preferred, adapts to part shade.
Looking for a larger variety? Have a look at the Leptospermum Burgundy Queen for another option!
