Sorry, this item is out of stock
Attractive New Zealand shrub called the "Tea Plant" by Captain Cook because of the agreeably aromatic tea his men made from the leaves. It is a prolific scrub-type tree and is often one of the first species to regenerate on cleared land. It is typically a shrub growing to 2–5 m tall, but can grow into a moderately sized tree, up to 15 m or so in height. It is evergreen, with dense branching and small leaves 7–20 mm long and 2–6 mm broad, with a short spine tip. The flowers are white, occasionally pink, 8–15 mm in diameter, with five petals. Makes a great bonsai specimen.
