Leptospermum scoparium Apple Blossom

New Zealand Tea Tree Apple Blossom

A frost-hardy shrub for very mild areas, Leptospermum scoparium Apple Blossom is a tall, evergreen shrub with a rounded habit and arching branches. The green leaves are narrowly elliptical and needle-like, and are sometimes tinged pink, particularly in cold weather. From April to July there’s a strong flush of pretty, fully double flowers in shades of pink fading to white, with a second flush in autumn. Drought-tolerant, and good for wildlife, it’s best grown in the shelter of a warm wall. New Zealand tea tree Appleblossom holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
