Leptospermum ‘White Wave’ – Tea Tree


A lovely dwarf, cascading shrub with small mid-green leaves and masses of stunning white flowers in spring. It is well named, with the profuse blossoms on arching branches making it look like foamy wave. A good easy care plant with a great ground covering habit. A perfect plant for small gardens and large tubs and is ideal for use on banks and cascading over retaining walls. Frost tolerant.
