Leptospermum ‘Lipstick’ – Tea Tree

An upright shrub growing to around 1.5 metres high and a metre wide, and has a glorious profusion of bright pink flowers in spring. It is a tough plant that will grow in a wide range of soil types and climates as either a feature or screen plant. It can also be used as an informal hedging and screening plant. Pruning after flowering will increase the density of the plant, and this is a good time to shape the plant. The flowers are nectar rich, and are great for floral work.
