Tea tree flowers are tiny, white and borne on stiff stems with short
laterals. The flower spike runs the majority of the stem.
The flowers are pure white with a pink tinge at base. Leaves are small and needle-like and bright to dark green. They are very aromatic when crushed, long lasting and perfect for drying.
They are used as filler flowers in bouquets to provide a subtle back-drop and highlight the feature flowers. These were in a colourful bunch of gerberas I bought last week.
