Sizing guide
Leptospermum obovatum, commonly known as the River Tea Tree, is a beautiful Australian native shrub valued for its attractive foliage and delicate flowers. This versatile plant is well-suited to a variety of garden styles and can be used as a feature plant, hedge, or screening plant.

Leptospermum obovatum typically grows to around 2-3 meters in height, with a similar spread. It has small, oval-shaped leaves that are dark green and aromatic when crushed. In spring and summer, the plant is adorned with an abundance of small, white flowers with prominent yellow stamens, creating a striking contrast against the foliage.
To grow Leptospermum obovatum, plant it in a sunny or partially shaded position in well-draining soil. It is tolerant of a wide range of soil types and is relatively low-maintenance once established. Prune lightly after flowering to maintain its shape and encourage bushy growth. This plant is also drought-tolerant and is an excellent choice for gardens with poor soil or limited water availability.
