Riverine Tea Tree. This uncommon to cultivation Tasmania endemic is often found along stream banks in its native setting so can take moister conditions than some other species. White flowers on an evergreen shrub with good flaking bark and getting to 8'-10'. Deer proof as well.
A unique evergreen member of the Myrtaceae family native to moist, rocky areas within alpine and subalpine regions of Australia. This forms a dense mound with arching branches, 3ft by 4ft with early summer small white flowers en masse. Diminutive leaves become coppery in winter, smelling lovely when crushed.
Myrtle Beech. This evergreen Tasmanian tree is infrequently seen in cultivation in North America. Our friend Steve Hootman's seed collection of this species will help put right any wrong in that arena. Small leaves adorn the branches - great for bonsai. Gets to be a large tree especially in warm temperate rain forest settings
Typically a white-flowered Tasmanian native evergreen tree, this pink version was found in 1984 by Ken Gillanders. Must have been jaw-dropping as the plant was 65' tall although the tallest in cultivation is perhaps 25'. Serious authorities have it hardy zones 7-10 but we'll say Z 8-10 and best sheltered from freezing/drying wind.
