Melaleuca gibbosa or slender honey myrtle is an open shrub usually from around 1.5 to 2 metres in height and with a similar spread.
Slender honey myrtle occurs naturally in coastal and subcoastal areas, moist sandy heathlands and adjacent forest areas in South Eastern Australia and Tasmania.
Melaleuca gibbosa (slender honey myrtle) also performs well in areas outside its natural range.
It may well go unnoticed until spring when it produces an abundance of spectacular mauve- pink bottlebrush flowers.
