Leptospermum is in the sub-family Leptospermoideae of family Myrtaceae and currently comprises 86 recognized species. Commonly referred to as “Teatree”, Leptospermum is distributed in Australia, South East Asia and New Zealand. It occupies a variety of habitats from coastal dunes to mountain peaks. Most commonly found in wet or periodically wet substrates that are acidic and low in nutrient content. They are easy to propagate from seed or cuttings. Several cultivars have been established in the trade for many years. With concentrated breeding effort, the Australian species will produce hybrids far superior to the usual breeds in terms of vigour and disease resistance. This can be a perfect addition for your garden due to its beautiful flowers and usability.
