Leptospermum scoparium (Manuka) Details

Commonly known as Manuka, this is a fast growing, NZ native shrub that produces masses of white flowers in spring and summer. The flowers are attractive to birds and bees with the nectar often used to produce honey. The foliage consists of small, dark green leaves which give off a pleasant fragrance, particularly on warm days. This evergreen typically grows to 3 m tall and 2 m, performing best when plant in full sun on a well-drained site. It will tolerate drought, heavy soils, wind, frost, and coastal environments but shaded conditions should be avoided. Manuka is commonly used as a nurse plant for other natives in a revegetation or riparian planting. In the home garden it provides excellent shelter and the fine foliage and floriferous nature makes it a lovely addition to a mixed planting.
