    Melaleuca bracteata

    $1.95 incl GST
    river tea tree

    Currently out of stock
    Available again from Autumn 2017

    Melaleuca bracteata or 'river tea tree' is large shrub or small tree native to the northern regions of australia and as the name suggests it is found growing along rivers and water courses. This species is also known variously as 'snow in summer' and 'white cloud tree' because in summer it produces a massive flowering display which enevelopes the entire canopy.

     

    Although native to the northern regions, Melaleuca bracteata (river tea tree) is highly adapatable and for instance it's been planted in Victoria as a street tree for decades. It is well suited for that purpose because its tough, has a compact canopy, single straight trunk and doesn't grow large enough to threaten overhead power lines. Good specimen tree.
