Leptospermum lanigerum or 'wooly tea-tree' is a widespread species occurring from central New South Wales through Southern Victoria, Tasmania and onto South Australia in the west. Wooly tea tree grows along water courses and drainage lines. Quite often wooly tea tree can occur in permanently inundation areas alongside aquatic plants like common reed.
Leptospermum lanigerum is therefore an ideal plant for very wet areas around dams and seepage areas and such. It will grow in thickets and regenerates well from seed. Wooly tea tree has attractive grey foliage and in cultivation produces prolific white flowers in Spring. It is adaptable to drier sites.
Recent testing has confirmed that this species is bio-active in the same way that 'jelly bush' and 'manuka' is bio active.
Seedlings that are forward ordered for larger projects will receive very generous volume discounts.
