Melaleuca thymifolia ‘Cotton Candy’ – Honey Myrtle

 

A dense mounded shrub with small leaves and pink bottlebrush flowers that are produced sporadically all year. The small leaf makes it useful as a low growing hedge, and the nectar rich flowers attract wildlife such as birds and butterflies. Frost and drought tolerant. Give a light trim once in a while to encourage a more dense habit.
