The unusual cascading prostrate growth habit and a profusion of small white flowers are the key features of this tea tree. It is ideal for use on banks and cascading over retaining walls and it is also perfect for a large container where it can spill over the edge. There is no need to prune it unless it is looking a bit scrappy over time.
