Leptospernum (Leptospermum scoparium (New Zealand tea tree))

Fell in love with this pretty plant.....apparently it is tender, so will have to watch out for frost!

yes it is on the tender side, DD i had one a few years ago - the hot pink but i lost it through the winter and can be hard to protect as get big. but well worth the extra effort i think.

Have put it in a pot, I did not know they liked ericaeous compost either, I have a dark pink one in the flower bed it has been very slow to grow, so have given it a good dollop of eric compost will see if that gets it going!!!
