Leptospermum continentale or juniper tea tree was formally known as Leptospermum juniperinum. Juniper tea tree occurs mainly in woodland and heathland over a wide geographical range from Southern New South Wales to southern South Australia. As its common name suggests it has slightly prickly foliage.
Leptospermum continentale when grown in cultivation usually produces a semi compact shrub with a spectacular show of white tea tree flowers in Spring.
Recent testing has confirmed that this species is bio-active in the same way that 'jelly bush' and 'manuka' is bio active.
Seedlings that are forward ordered for larger projects will receive very generous volume discounts.
