Leptospermum nitidum 'Copper Sheen' (Shining Tea Tree) Details

“Copper Sheen” is an Australian native that bears both attractive foliage and flowers. The leaves are small, copper coloured, and produced on upright branches that have a gentle arch. Small and showy, white flowers are produced in abundance through summer. It grows broad and upright to about 3 m tall and 2 m wide, performing best when planted in full sun on a well-drained site. This hardy plant will tolerate dry periods, coastal environments, frost, and moderate wind. “Copper Sheen” is commonly used for screening, hedging, and shelter, but also makes for a spectacular show when used as a backdrop smaller plants or included in a mixed planting.
