Kunzea ericoides is an NZ native with small, narrow, scented leaves and clusters of white flowers. Also known as white tea tree, this large bush is attractive to bees. Very tough tolerating frosts, drought and poor soils. Makes a great screening plant or nurse crop for other species.

This species is often confused with the closely related species Manuka - the easiest way to tell the difference between the two species in the field is to feel their foliage - Manuka leaves are prickly while Kanuka leaves are soft.

Grows to approx. 10m tall x 4m wide when mature.
