Australian Tea Tree
Not to be confused with tea plants these tea tree plants (Melaleuca alternifolia) are prized for the antiseptic properties in the fragrant leaves. Used externally for a wide range of skin conditions they are an attractive and fragrant tree and despite originating in Southern Australia they are suprisingly hardy and can be grown in a pot on a patio in sheltered areas of the UK.
These fragrant tea tree bushes make a great gift for anyone interested in herbal medicines. Delivered just as pictured, these are a fast growing shrub and we expect them to double or triple in size over the summer months.
