Leptospermum obovatum ‘Lemon Bun’ Tea Tree

A small dense mounding shrub with soft lemon-scented foliage with a profusion of lime-cream flowers that attract butterflies and provide food for insect-foraging small birds such as Scrub Wrens. It is perfect for low hedging, with minimal shaping required; may be planted beside pools and bog gardens; and can be clipped regularly to create a formal ball in a decorative container.
