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: Pale pink, double. 7’ x 5’.
Burgundy Queen: Deep cherry-red, double. Dark reddish-green leaves. 7’ x 5’.
Nanum ‘Tui’: 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.
Snowflake: White, double. 7’x 5’.
