Design IdeasMost Leptospermum are big upright plants, but this charming short-statured cultivar is one of the few that fits into city gardens. A striking accent, its tufts of very fine-textured foliage bloom brilliantly. To intensify its presence, group in clusters of three to five. Add to rock gardens in warmer climates, grow on sunny banks and slopes, where it will thrive in the heat, or line several into an exceptionally drought-resistant flowering hedge. Ideal for integrating into landscapes with Mediterranean plants and Southwestern natives.
