Leptospermum scoparium – Mānuka or Tea Tree
This is a large bush, growing up to 4M tall. Profusion of pink flowers covers the tree for weeks in late spring.
This is such a common plant in Tasman that it can be overlooked. The garden cultivars are a huge improvement, in terms of flowering impact and longevity, on the native forms. It is [of course] spectacularly well suited to growing in Karin’s Garden.
