Jazzy tea tree with bright pink open flowers, very adaptable to most Aussie climates, given enough water, except extreme heat and humidity. Makes a good feature shrub or informal hedge in native and wildlife gardens as it's very bushy and frost resistant.
Fun fact: Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of pleasure, passion and procreation. We can't guarantee any of that, if you plant this shrub in your garden, but you never know your luck...
Leptospermum spectabile 'Aphrodite'
DESCRIPTION: Native medium-large bushy mounding shrub, with dense bright foliage and heaps of bright pink five-petalled spring flowers, large for a tea tree. Bred by Bywong Nursery.

CARE: Mulch and water regularly during the first 4-6 weeks or until the plant is established. Water in dry spells. Will cope with being pruned quite hard if you need to, but a light annual prune after flowering is better to maintain a dense habit and flowers.
