    Melaleuca styphelioides or prickly tea tree is a tree of up to 15 - 20 metres where it occurs naturally in Northern New South Wales northward into Queensland. It has slightly prickly foliage and is comonly used in those regions as a specimen and street tree.

     

    Prickly tea tree has been planted extensively outside its natural range, particularly in the cooler regions of Victoria where it grows as a large shrub to 5 or 6 metres and thick to ground level. This growth habit in cool regions means that Melaleuca styphelioides is an excellent species for planting as a shelterbelt that also offers a deterent for stock due to the prickly foliage.
