New Zealand Tea Tree I would love to have one in my garden

New Zealand Tea Tree

For awhile I had a New Zealand Tea Tree (Leptospermum scoparium) growing in a large pot in my back yard. Several varieties of this species can be found in the nursery trade. This dark red variety is my favorite, and it is quite popular in California. Later on, when I visited New Zealand, I was able to actually walk through a forest of wild tea trees, which the New Zealanders call "manuka" trees. But all of them, even the ones in cultivation, had white or pale pink flowers.

For a palette of warm-tones, combine large interesting foliage like cannas, elephant ear, and the spiky leaves of phormium (New Zealand flax) in shades of purple, green, and red.
