Leptospermum ‘Tickled Pink’ Tea Tree

 

A beautiful upright medium shrub with small mid-green leaves. It produces a flourish of showy  pink flowers in spring, which make great cut flowers. A great feature or container plant, can also be used as a flowering hedge or screen if well pruned. Can be used for sunny positions and in light shade. Pruning after flowering is beneficial, and feed in spring with a good native fertiliser. Best in well drained but moist soils.
