Melaleuca squamea or 'swamp honey myrtle' is a shrub of around 2 metres naturally occuring in swampy areas in South Eastern Australia and Tasmania. It is quite common and being used increasingly in cultivation where water tolerance is required.


Swamp honey myrtle may go unnoticed in the bush until spring when they give an impressive display of purple or pink globular flowers.

    Really thrilled with the quality of health of plants. From the enquiry stage through to order and pick up the team at ERA were helpful, professional and friendly. Highly recommend them to anyone wishing to source natives of high quality.
