Leptospermum laevigatum, commonly known as the Coastal Tea Tree or Smooth Tea Tree, is a unique evergreen shrub native to Australia. It belongs to the Myrtaceae family and typically grows in coastal regions with sandy soils. The plant features smooth, copper-colored bark and dense, bushy foliage.
Its small, dark green leaves are aromatic when crushed, emitting a pleasant tea-like scent. Leptospermum laevigatum produces attractive white flowers with five petals that bloom profusely in spring and early summer, attracting bees and other pollinators.
This hardy and resilient shrub is valued for its ability to tolerate coastal winds, drought conditions, and poor soils, making it an excellent choice for coastal gardens and erosion control projects.

It is a hardy shrub for moist soils in a range of climates. It prefers full sun or part shade. It is tolerant of salt spray making it particularly useful in coastal areas.
