Great Leaping Leptospermum! These popular shrubs make a dazzling splash in winter and early spring.
Leptospermum scoparium wins a prize for Most Versatile Form. If sheared regularly they stay dense all the way to
the ground. You can also selectively prune them up to show their intriguing gnarled and twisted branches with
fibrous bark. You can train them into a standard, make them into a formal hedge, shear them into balls, cubes,
cylinders, etc., or simply relax and enjoy their picturesque natural shapes. Their darling little papery flowers come
in a variety of colors. Appleblossom, Burgundy Queen, and Snowflake all grow to about 7'x 5'.
Nanum ‘Tui’ is a dwarf variety, 3’ x 2’. Single pink flowers with dark centers are followed by interesting
button-like seedpods, which remain on the branches. Finely textured bronzy-green foliage.
