An upright fine leafed ornamental shrub with soft pink teatree flowers.  Grows well in tropical to cool temperate climates, will tolerate light frosts. Plant as hedging or screening around decks, pools, barbeque areas, or indoors as needed. This cultivar reputedly vaporises citronella into the atmosphere to repel mosquitos, crushing the foliage will release more of the oils contained in the leaves.
