Endemic to New Zealand, this is a member of the myrtle family slightly reminiscent of Leptospermum. It forms a spreading shrub or tall tree to 18m. The bark peels in broad strips and is soft and scented when rubbed, while the leaves are hard if rubbed. The flowers are small but plentiful and held on previous years growth though flowering times can sometimes be irregular.

It grows amongst coastal scrub and sand dunes, on open or disturbed ground. A plant for mild gardens, it is best grown in full sun. Intolerant both of root disturbance and hard pruning.

As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
