Melaleuca Lanceolata


Moonah is unusual in that is one of the few melaleucas that will grow in dry regions and on limestone. It has very small lance shaped leaves, and white bottlebrush-like flowers that grow in a cluster on the older branches. Because of this habit, the flowers tend to be hidden amongst the leaves. The fruits are small globular capsules.

Flowering time March to April.
