The manuka tea tree is native to New Zealand but has been recently grown in the United States along warm coastal regions, both tropical and sub-tropical.
This evergreen shrub grows at a medium rate and can be grown in a pot, trimmed as a hedge, or grown all the way up into a shrub or small tree size.
It has a charming old-world or antique look to it with dainty and prim-looking flowers of white with pinkish-red centers. Leptospermum scoparium comes in 3 colors: white, pink, and red. These seeds came from the white variety however do note that I offer the pink/red ones as well.
Grow Zones: 8,9,10,11 Other Names: Leptospermum scoparium, Tea Tree, Broom Teatree, Manuka, New Zealand Tea Tree Seed Size: Very Tiny (thread-like seeds)
