Leptospermum ‘Aphrodite’ – Tea Tree

A medium to tall shrub, growing to around 2.5 metres high and wide, the lush green foliage contrasts well with the bright pink flowers.  It flowers prolifically in spring, and they are great for floral work and nectar loving insects like bees and butterflies love them. The naturally bushy habit makes it an ideal screening plant that tolerates damp as well as dry soils. Can be trimmed as a hedge, and it responds well to pruning, so it can be kept to a smaller size if desired. Prune after the flowers finish. Best in temperate climates, sunny to part shade.
