Leptospermum 'Merinda' (Manuka) Details

“Merinda” is a variety of Manuka that grows as an open bush with a somewhat weeping growth habit. It bears masses of single, magenta-coloured flowers with a green centre through spring and summer. The foliage comprises small, dark green leaves which complement the flowers nicely. This evergreen shrub typically grows to 2 m tall and 3 m wide, and can be trimmed as necessary. Best performance with this variety is achieved when it is planted in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained site. It is a hardy plant that will tolerate frost, coastal environments, and a wide range of soil conditions, barring extreme wet or dry. “Merinda” is commonly used as a backdrop for smaller plants, included in a mixed planting, maintained in a container, trimmed into a hedge, or planted around outdoor living areas.
